James Wilson – 19 year-old Man United striker
Apparently the Red Devils are looking for a good club to send James to for next season on loan, where he can get games in the Premier League, and Newcastle may be a good target.
The report suggests that Newcastle would be willing to take the teenager on loan for the full season.
But of course while that would be good for Newcastle for one season, it’s really benefiting the Red Devils, and if James is as good as we think he can be, Newcastle would have no chance of signing him long term.
We found that out with Loic Remy, that once they saw how Newcastle are run by Mike Ashley – where money is the only important thing and we have limited ambitions, they want to move onto a bigger club.
Remy is now with Chelsea and Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy are other examples of that and they are now at PSG and Arsenal respectively.
The teenager has made 17 appearances for the Red Devils with four goals over the last two seasons, and he is a gifted player with a good eye for goal and he has played for the England Youth teams through the U20 level.
If Steve McClaren is made Newcastle boss in the summer – surely it cannot be John Carver – then that would also be a positive from Manchester United’s viewpoint, with Steve still having close ties with his former club.
And of course if Newcastle had thought out of the box, they could have tried to get James in during the January transfer window – because we are very short of strikers at the moment.
But that would have also meant Newcastle would have needed to spend money – sorry – but I’m just not thinking right this morning.
We have no idea if this report is accurate at all, but it’s at least interesting and even positive for Newcastle.
