Manchester United striker James Wilson is all set to join the Championship outfit Fulham on loan for next season.

The highly talented academy graduate has struggled to establish himself as a first team player and the emergence of Marcus Rashford has further damaged his chances of getting some first team action. Wilson made just two first team appearances under Louis Van Gaal last season.

According to latest reports, Mourinho will allow the player to leave on loan so he can continue his development with regular first team football.

The Red Devils have signed Ibrahimovic this summer and with Rooney, Martial and Rashford already at the club, it makes perfect sense for Wilson to leave on loan.

The young striker impressed during his short cameos in the past, but he is far from ready to lead the line at Old Trafford.

Wilson signed a new deal with Manchester United towards the end of 2015 and can always return as a first teamer at his boyhood club if he can fulfill his potential.

Wilson impressed on loan at Brighton last season and will be hoping to do the same at Craven Cottage next season.

The player is very highly rated at Old Trafford and was tipped to become a future superstar by Lionel Messi last year.
