Sunderland are closing in a deal to take Januzaj to the Stadium of Light on a season long loan to end the Belgium winger’s nightmare.
Januzaj, 21, has been ditched from the first team by new United boss Mourinho and forced to train with the club’s Under-23 side.
He is the latest star to suffer from Mourinho’s ruthless streak after experienced Germany star Bastian Schweinsteiger was frozen out.
Juan Mata was also hauled off during United’s Community Shield win over Leicester, despite only coming off the bench 27 minutes earlier.
But Starsport understands Mata will stay at Old Trafford.
Sources close to Januzaj though have revealed he feels humiliated by being put with the kids rather than training with the first team.
