PHOTO: Januzaj emotional at 'brother' leaving Manchester United

Manchester United wonderkid wishes departing Charni Ekangamene all the best.

Manchester United announced earlier on Friday evening that young prospect Charni Ekangamene has left the club.

The 20-year-old was yet to make a first team appearance for the Red Devils, and has signed with Zulte Waregem in Belgium, where Thorgan Hazard has played on loan for the past two seasons.

Ekangamene's move back to his homeland is not insignificant for last season's breakthrough star at United, who had struck up a real close bond to the versatile midfielder.

Adnan Januzaj posted an emotional message on his Instagram page in wake of the news, publicly wishing his 'brother' well in the future.

"Your not my friend but your my brother forever ! I wish u all the best for the future you will be big ! Will always be with you wish u all the best my brother @cekangamene43"

The feeling certainly appeared neutral, with Ekangamene praising Januzaj, and others, on his departure via the United website.

"I trained alongside Marnick Vermijl, Ritchie De Laet, Adnan Januzaj and even Marouane Fellaini and it's been a learning experience for me. Now is the time for the next step."
