‘First Smart Signing In Years’ ‘This Guy Has So Much Pace’ Fans On Social Media Are Keen On United Sealing £15m Deal

Manchester United are close to securing the signing of Daniel James from Swansea City, according to reports in the English media.

The Red Devils are said to have offered £15m for the 21-year-old. When asked about the winger at yesterday’s pre-match press conference, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not deny the story but instead emphasised the importance of developing young players:

“Ronaldo was never ready-made, Wayne Rooney was never ready-made. Loads of the players that come here and really developed into the top superstars that they have become.”

“That’s always going to be the model – that we will develop players because I’ve got the best staff, the best environment.”

Supporters on Twitter think the move for James could prove to be a good piece of business:

Signing young players is always a risk, but James has shown rapid improvement over the past season. The Welsh international has scored five goals and contributed 10 assists in 38 games for Swansea this campaign.

The forward generally plays on the left wing, but he has also been utilised on the right-hand side by Swans boss Graham Potter.

A switch to Leeds collapsed during the January transfer window, but with James’s contract expiring in 2020, Swansea are prepared to do a deal to sell him this summer.
