Football News

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is expected to tell striker James Wilson that he can go out on loan once again next season.

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Portuguese tactician has made the decision because of Marcus Rashford's incredible rise at Old Trafford.

Rashford, 18, only made his debut for the Red Devils back in February but quickly established himself a leading player under Louis van Gaal's guidance.

And there's every chance that Rashford, who is currently with the England squad in France for Euro 2016, will play a prominent role in the United first-team next term.

But it appears that Rashford's rise is set to leave Wilson facing an uncertain future.

Wilson on the move

The forward was shipped off on loan to Brighton last season and may have to secure himself another temporary move to a Championship club in the immediate future.

If the report is to be believed, United's new manager will tell Wilson that he can leave on loan next week.

The Sun claim that the Championship duo of Birmingham City and Aston Villa are keen to sign the man who struck five goals for Brighton last season.

United options

Mourinho, then, will be left with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and, of course, Rashford.

But United fans will be hoping to see their new manager make additions to his attacking line over the coming weeks and months.

The name of Zlatan Ibrahimovic just won't go away and it's seemingly likely that the enigmatic forward will join the United ranks sooner rather than later.

The Swedish legend is approaching the final stages of his career - he's currently 34-years-old - but he remains one of the most revered strikers in world football and would represent a significant coup for Mourinho.
