Manchester United striker James Wilson has maintained extreme confidence that he will be a Manchester United player next season and will not be loaned out. The 19 year old believes that his performance for United during their pre-season tour of America will be enough to convince the Dutch Manager to keep him for the season. The English striker played a total of 117 minutes for Manchester United on their tour.
The 19 year old played a No 10 role for United against Barcelona and was part of the build-up to Jesse Lingard’s goal. He told the Manchester United Website “The tour has been an unbelievable experience for me, “I expressed myself to the manager. He knows what I’m capable of and I just needed to show that. I’ve gone out there and done what I could.”
James Wilson featured 13 times for Manchester United last season netting only once when he came on as a substitute for Jonny Evans and scored in added time at the end of a 2–0 win at Queens Park Ranger. The Englishman will be hoping to improve on his goal-scoring record in the upcoming season. With Van Gaal ruling out the transfer of a striker to Manchester United, James Wilson will be hoping to seize the opportunity and prove to Van Gaal that he has enough quality to play for Manchester United.
