FORGOTTEN Manchester United wonderkid Adnan Januzaj is being lined up for a transfer to Saudi Arabia.
Januzaj, now 28, is the latest star who could make the switch from Europe to the Middle East.
The winger currently turns out for Sevilla but spent the second half of last season on loan with Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir.
The La Liga outfit are looking to sell Januzaj in order to raise cash for a new midfielder and centre-back.
And Mundo Deportivo now claim Saudi side Al-Tai could make the Spanish club's wish come true.
Al-Tai finished ninth in the Saudi Pro League last season.

With Januzaj appearing to not have a future in Spain, a deal would represent European quality heading to a lesser Saudi team.
Most major stars have headed to one of the four clubs owned by the nation's Public Investment Fund – Al-Ittihad, Al-Nassr, Al-Ahil and Al-Hilal – who also own Newcastle.
While the European window shuts on September 1, the Saudi window does not close until September 20.
This means there is plenty of time for the two parties to strike a deal.

Januzaj has an estimated market value of £5.2million.
He showed promise when breaking into the United first team during David Moyes' ill-fated time in charge of United back in the 2013/14 season.
But he never managed to consolidate this momentum and was eventually sold to Real Sociedad in 2017.
He then joined Sevilla on a free transfer on 2022.
