James Wilson impresses as Man Utd reserves cruise against Salford

Manchester United’s promising striker James Wilson impressed for the club’s reserve side as they cruised to a 5-1 friendly victory against Salford.

The 20-year-old, who was not included in United’s pre-season tour of China, scored within three minutes of kick-off against the club owned by United’s famed Class of 92 stars.

However, it still remains very unlikely that United’s academy graduate will feature in manager Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans for next season and is likely to be sent out on loan after spending time wth Brighton & Hove Albion last term.
