Manchester United set to recall 19-year-old loanee as Jose Mourinho left unhappy

Manchester United youngster Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is reportedly set to return to Old Trafford early from his loan spell with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 19-year-old secured a temporary move to Molineux this past summer with a view of gaining regular first-team football and continuing his development.

However, it hasn’t quite gone to plan as he has made just four Championship appearances for Walter Zenga, and in turn it has reportedly left Jose Mourinho unhappy, according to the The Daily Mail.

It’s added in the report that United had several offers for Borthwick-Jackson earlier this summer, but Wolves gave assurances that the youngster would play regularly and as a result were picked as the ideal destination for the defender.

While Mourinho believes that Borthwick-Jackson has a future at Old Trafford, he is adamant that he needs to gain experience before breaking into the United team but it doesn’t look as though he will be getting that at Wolves.

Further, it’s claimed that the Portuguese tactician could now use the talented teenager as a back-up option to Luke Shaw instead, with Marcos Rojo failing to convince him so far this season.

In turn, it looks as though a return to Manchester is on the cards, and it will certainly add further competition for places moving forward while Wolves could be left disappointed having failed to use Borthwick-Jackson to their benefit so far this season.
