The 22-year-old pair are likely to be unveiled by Boro at Curtis Fleming`s testimonial game against Athletic Bilbao and Sunday, and both have wasted little time to criticise their former employers.
Greening was first to condemn United and he disagreed with their policy of signing foreign players.
"Signing Ruud van Nistelrooy and Juan Veron was confirmation for me that youngsters at United are rarely given the same opportunity as players were in the past," he said.
"The club is more likely to spend millions rather than give fringe players the time to establish themselves.
"I have a Champions League winner's medal after sitting on the bench when we beat Bayern.
"But I didn't play a single minute of European football that season. I felt a bit of a fraud when I got the medal."
Wilson (pictured) also admitted to being disenchanted with the life at United, saying: "It has been frustrating watching the likes of Alan Smith and Kieron Dyer making their mark on the England set-up."
