Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to sell Januzaj when he takes charge at Manchester United.

Everton could be the perfect next club for Manchester United outcast Adnan Januzaj.

The Belgian starlet was hotly tipped to be the next best thing when he broke through at Old Trafford, but has since fallen by the wayside at the club.

That was largely duo to Louis van Gaal not being impressed by his attitude and performance levels, while a loan spell at Borussia Dortmund did not work out.

With the Dutchman now gone, one would imagine that things could be about to improve for Januzaj when Jose Mourinho takes charge.

That may not be the case though, with the Sun reporting that the Belgian will be one of three players that the former Chelsea boss will look to sell on.

Should that be the case, then Everton would be a perfect destination for him to move onto next.

First and foremost, they are in desperate need of a left sided midfielder in the squad, and he would be almost guaranteed a first team place.

They have long missed the presence of Steven Pienaar in the side, and Januzaj would prove a more than suitable long-term replacement.

The Blues are also well known for developing young talent, John Stones, Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku are testament to that, and Januzaj could find similar development at Goodison Park.

He would be among familiar company too, with international teammates Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas already at the club likely to help him settle quick on Merseyside. 

Of course, Everton would face a fight to secure Januzaj given his undeniable talent but a move to Goodison Park could be a wise move for both parties.
