Jose Mourinho paves way for striker to leave

According to reports from Daily Telegraph, Manchester United striker James Wilson is all cleared to leave Old Trafford with Jose Mourinho keen to let the player leave on loan.

It is reported Championship rivals Fulham and Derby are in the middle of a bidding war to land the talented striker as Jose Mourinho is set for a squad overhaul after adding some key players to the squad in the summer. The loan deal is expected to be finalized before the end of the weekend.

The 20-year old is one of the talented players from Manchester United and was impressive under former manager Louis van Gaal when he broke into Manchester United senior squad.

However, new manager Jose Mourinho is willing to send him on a loan deal as the player might not get much playing time if he stays at Old Trafford this season.

Manchester United have added Zlatan Ibrahimovic to their striker force this summer and now the English U-21 international is below the likes of Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford besides Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the pecking order.

The 20-year old has spent last season on loan at Brighton and impressed as he managed to score five goals. Wilson would be keen to challenge for a place in the first team when he arrives next summer after the loan spell.

James Wilson has first come into the limelight when he scored a double against Hull City in his debut match during the end of 2013-14 season. Jose Mourinho is keen to trim his squad to as less as 25 players including goalkeepers for the upcoming season and sees the player as a future perspective.
