You need no seer to tell you Manchester United need to put their attack in shape if they must turn the tide and make consistent meaning of their season at this stage of the campaign. Manager, Louis van Gaal made a string of horrible horrendous decisions during the summer transfer window, especially in attack, when he let Falcao, Robin Van Persie, Angel Di Maria and Javier Hernandez all leave the club. He also sent James Wilson on a season-long loan to Brighton. What replacements did he bring in for five departures? The Dutch manager brought in Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial.
So far this season, Wayne Rooney has netted just twice in 12 Premier League games. On the other hand, big money signing, Martial not lived up to promise netting just three times in 11 Premier league appearances- even those three goals came in his first two games. Wilson, in contrast has found the found the back of the net twice in three championship games for Brighton.
He seems to be the most readily available option to bring as as the transfer window opens again (with other bigger names making the rounds in rumours). Though the loan deal is supposed to expire at the end of the season, United has the right to recall him back from loan before that expiration. And it is almost inevitable that the club will seek to exercise this right in the nearest future.
Brighton manager, Chris Hughton confirmed to the Daily Mail that Manchester United can trigger the clause and recall their striker back in mid-season. Can Wilson fire up the Red devils this season? Only time will tell.
