Manchester United striker James Wilson has admitted that he would have loved the opportunity to play alongside the club's former player Cristiano Ronaldo, reports the Daily Star.
Wilson, who made his breakthrough into the Red Devils first-team under temporary manager Ryan Giggs last season, has continued his development throughout the course of the campaign.
With Louis van Gaal now in charge at the Theatre of Dreams, Wilson is recognised as a key member of the United squad.
In fact, the teenager has started to find some form of late after scoring against QPR in the Premier League last month and finding the net against Cambridge United in the FA Cup this past week.
Wilson, though, has admitted that he would have loved to see how Ronaldo fared on and off the pitch.

Speaking about the Real Madrid superstar, Wilson said: "I would love to have played with him [Ronaldo] because of how hard he works, not just on the pitch but also off the pitch.
"He has worked really hard in the gym to get where he is now, so I would love to see his mentality going into games and then after games."
Ronaldo, of course, became a club legend at Manchester United after inspiring the club to various trophies throughout his stint in England.
Since then, though, the Portuguese superstar has gone from strength-to-strength in La Liga, and even secured his second consecutive Ballon d'Or in Zurich last month.
Wilson, meanwhile, will be desperate to prove himself at Manchester United over the upcoming months and years.
There's no doubt about it, the forward, who is extremely quick and has a great eye for goal, is more than capable of becoming a top player, but will now be hoping to kick on.
In fact, he will be hoping to star this weekend as the Red Devils prepare to travel to Upton Park to take on West Ham United in the Premier League. Louis van Gaal's side will be determined to secure all three points against the Hammers as they look to secure a place in next year's Champions League.
