Manchester United are flying in the Premier League this season as they are unbeaten in the league so far and even in the Champions League they have stared so well. Mourinho went all cash splashing in the summer window and the new boys have delivered their worth as Lukaku, Matic has proved to be instrumental in their performances.
And it seems that there will be some outgoings and incoming for the Red Devils in the winter as Mourinho is looking to let go some of his fringe personnel and bring some players in as well.
As per as reports of The Sun, Manchester United striker James Wilson is a January loan target for Championship rivals Leeds United and Reading. The 21 year old has so far made 15 league appearances for the Red Devils but suffered a serious knee injury during his loan spell at Derby. Currently he has recovered from injury but his chances at Old Trafford is very limited with the likes of Lukaku and Mkhitaryan are ahead in the pecking order.
Wilson says going out on loan when the January transfer window opens is a real possibility in order to step up his revivification.

“I don’t see why not. Obviously, the summer transfer window has gone and there was a lot of interest,” he told MUTV. “But the staff all came to an agreement that I would stay until January to build on what I’ve already worked for.”
On the other side of the story, United are interested on Aaron Martin, 20 year old left back of Spanish club Espanyol and are planning to bring him as early as January, ESPN reports.
Martin has been a decent player for the Catalan club and United scouts watched him in Espanyol’s recent match against Levante. He can be brought if United pay his release clause which is around 40 million euros.

Also another good news for the United fans is that Juan Mata has turned down a lucrative offer from a Chinese Super League club, according to sources. The bid was enormous, but the Spaniard turned it down and has expressed his wish to extend contract with Manchester United.
“Well, I am happy here, I’m happy in Manchester,” he said.
“I’ve been here almost four years, and I love the people here. The city is very nice and has a lot of things to do.”
