Aston Villa are currently looking to bounce back from relegation. The Birmingham club were sent down to the second tier of English football for their first time in the Premier League era last season, and have appointed Roberto Di Matteo as manager in a bid to get back to the top flight.
Under new ownership, the Villans are expected to spend big this summer in order to keep their stay in the Championship to a minimum.
James Wilson is widely viewed as a serious prospect for the future at Manchester United, but he may have to bide his time. Due to the rise of Marcus Rashford and the expected arrival of a world class marksman, José Mourinho may not have time for James Wilson at this stage.
However, a loan move may not necessarily be the worst move for the 20 year-old, who spent the second half of last season at Brighton & Hove Albion.
According to the Sun, the Red Devils are offering Villa the services of Wilson on loan, in order that he can further mature as a striker.
This is viewed as a good move for both clubs, as Villa are looking for a prolific striker, something that they were certainly lacking last term.
