Blackburn Rovers have told Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj he will lead their attack this season.

The Mirror says Rovers want to take the young Belgian on-loan next week.

Blackburn managing director Derek Shaw hopes his long-term relationship with United boss David Moyes will help sway a deal.

Januzaj - currently in a tug-of-war between Belgium and Albania - could be a surprise new partner for top scorer Jordan Rhodes.
