One Manchester United fan was heard coughing as he nearly choked on his pint in shock whilst reading the Daily Mail this morning, who report that no less that 20(!) clubs have enquired about James Wilsons’ availability for a loan move, in the last week.
With the Old Trafford outfit signing fellow teenager Anthony Martial, it has been seen that Wilson may have been available. However despite this he is still only one of three recognised strikers at the club following the sale of Javier Hernandez to Bayer Leverkusen, so it is difficult to see them letting him go
Our Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are glad they have kept hold of the striker which has shown much promise, since breaking into the first team under then caretaker manager Ryan Giggs.
However the striker has only played 17 minutes for Manchester United since February but they are hoping the fact that their club kept hold of him to this point shows that they are ready to give him more of a chance in the first team.
The loan window for Championship clubs opens on Wednesday, so a move could yet develop – with Derby County one club that is pushing for the move hugely.
Manchester United fans. Do you want to keep Wilson at Old Trafford this season? Or do you think it would be more beneficial to send him out on loan? Let us know below!
