James Wilson has told the club’s official website, ManUtd.com, that he is prepared for what he calls an important year in his career.
A number of forwards have left Manchester United this summer and Wilson may even find himself second choice – in front of Javier Hernandez – after featuring quite often last season under Louis van Gaal.
The club have been linked with a number of forwards but Wilson is intending to concentrate on his own development instead of paying attention to the rumours.
“I can only show the manager what I have got,” he said. “He (Van Gaal) kind of knows my qualities so I have just got to go out on the pitch, show him what I can do and hopefully get that chance to play this season. It is tough for the manager with so many players on the tour because everyone has to get minutes, so it was nice to play in both games and 45 minutes was good. I feel fit and I am just hoping not to get injured like last season. It is going to be an important year for me.”
Wilson made his debut at the end of the 2013/14 season and has scored three goals in fourteen league goals for United – a figure more impressive when considering only three of those games have been started.
