Manchester United striker James Wilson has revealed that he'd love to have the instincts of fellow striker Radamel Falcao. 

Speaking to the Inside United magazine, as reported by the club's official website, the young striker, who has enjoyed a number of outings in the first team under the guidance of Louis van Gaal this season, has revealed which qualities he would take from the forwards at Old Trafford.

As well as insisting that Falcao's always in the right place, Wilson has revealed that he's like to take free-kicks like Wayne Rooney and have the movement of Dutch striker Robin van Persie.

When speaking about his fellow strikers, the forward said: "I would take Wayne’s free-kicks because he practices them every day and more often than not they go on target at least, if not in the top corner.

"I would take Robin’s movement because he has done it for many years now, using opposite movements to get on the ball.”

And what about Falcao? “I would have to take Radamel’s instincts because anything in the box drops to him – he is always in the right place!”

Wilson, of course, played alongside Van Persie for the U-21 side last night, and will no doubt be hoping to feature for the first team once again before the end of the campaign. 

Huge future 

With the array of attacking talent already plying their trade at the Theatre of Dreams, the United faithful have only seen glimpses of what Wilson has to offer, but he's no doubt set for stardom at the club. 

It's clear for all to see that Louis van Gaal thinks highly of him, so he should have no problem in gaining more first-team opportunities over the coming years. 

And, in truth, with the struggles of Van Persie and Falcao this term, Wilson will no doubt be hoping that his chances come sooner rather than later.

If he can get into the side and start scoring on a regular basis, then he may well have a huge role to play imminently. Big things are expected of the extremely talented young man - and rightly so.
