Manchester United are having second thoughts about loaning out their 19 year-old striker James Wilson to Newcastle United for next season, and it’s because of the absolute chaos on Tyneside, and probably also because they want James to play in the Premier League next season, and Newcastle could be relegated next month.
James Wilson – not coming to Newcastle next season
There was news a couple of weeks ago that a deal to have Wilson join Newcastle on loan for next season was close to being reached, after Newcastle had held talks with the Manchester club, but it looks like the Red Devils will be pulling out of the deal.
But these are some of the consequences of letting the Newcastle squad become threadbare and appointing an untested and untried interim coach to replace the experienced Alan Pardew.
John Carver has now managed to lose seven games on the trot, and eight of the last nine, to plummet the club into a relegation fight.
The report on Wilson is in the Mail, and it’s hardly surprising if indeed the Red Devils were close to finalizing a deal with Newcastle.
And our terrible form and free-fall down the league table will also have consequences in the transfer market this summer – because there will not be too many ambitious and good players want to come to Tyneside this summer.
We are just hoping that teams below is in the league keep losing, because it looks like our players will find it hard to win another game this season – such is the rot that has set in this year.
