Are Milan chasing a Manchester United misfit?

The Belgian winger is supposedly on Milan's radar.

Milan may be looking to grab Adnan Januzaj, the twenty-one year old winger for Manchester United. Montella has requested a winger, and Januzaj is the latest to be linked with the Rossoneri. Man Utd may be looking to offload him on a loan as the player seems to be out of favor with Mourinho.

Stoke City and Sunderland have also been looking at the Belgian. The 21 year old has been praised as a future star but has yet to break out onto the scene. Milan would look to pay Januzaj's €2.5 million contact, with an option to buy at the end of the season. The winger would compete with Suso and Niang for a spot in the first-team squad.

Mourinho is not keen on the player, only giving him three appearances for United after he transferred from Borussia in the winter. Januzaj would be a fresh addition for the club, and it may be easier for Milan to complete as the transfer would go through after the acquisition of the club is set to go through. Januzaj is not the only winger on Montella's list, Cuadrado and Alejandro Gomez being some of the others.

Let's hope we can make a purchase.
