Manchester United striker set for surprise switch to Merseyside?

James WilsonOur punters at the Transfer Tavern are certainly taking a keen interest in the latest rumour going round, as the Liverpool Echo reports that Manchester United wonderkid James Wilson could be heading on loan to Everton!

Though it is only initially a loan deal, Manchester United fans could be beginning to worry that another young star is about to slip through the net at Old Trafford, without really being given a chance.

Furthermore, Everton have certainly been partial to taking a player deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and developing him well. With Tim Howard, Phil Neville, Darron Gibson and Louis Saha all being good examples.

Should Wilson make the switch, this could potentially also leave the Reds short of strikers. As Robin Van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Angelo Henriquez have also been linked with moves away from the club. Therefore, it would be hard to see this move being allowed to happen unless some more forward players walk through the Theatre of Dreams first.

United fans…. What do you make of this news? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
