Done Deal: Man United complete the signing of Daniel James from Swansea City

The transfer window has only just opened and Man United has lost no time in adding to the ranks this summer.

It has been reported that both Swansea City and Man United have agreed on a deal for the transfer of Welsh forward, Daniel James. A week ago The Top Flight reported talks were progressing well and the Old Trafford side was leading the race for his signature.

Now it seems a couple of weeks on from the statements released talks have materialised from speculations to a deal completed. All parties involved are said to be happy with the asking price of 15 million pounds for United’s first capture of the season.

It is also said that the player himself has agreed on personal terms with the club. A contract of five-years-long is said to be on the table, with the wages still to be announced. James is a massive coup for the Red Devils but the offer to play for United and European football is an attractive pull for a player in the EFL Championship.

The winger comes highly recommended by ex-United player and legend, Ryan Giggs, who is a huge admirer of the player. Giggs utilises Daniel in his Welsh side and is a regular starter under Wales’ manager, Ryan Giggs.

No doubt the Old Trafford favourite had a major hand in the transfer of Daniel James to United, with him wanting help to bring back success at his old club. Ole and the United board will be relieved they fended off rivals for a promising forward. A forward who comes at a cheap and avoids their big money signings who have failed previously at the club.

Kaveh Sokhekol of Sky Sports believes a few loose ends need some tying up, but a deal is as good as done and could be announced as soon as Wednesday.

James’ work rate at Swansea City is key to what Ole wants at Old Trafford, as he has expressed this timelessly since taking charge at United. Now his plans are in motion with the first signing a step in the right direction and a player who has loads to offer a struggling United side.

What’s next for the Manchester side… Hakim Ziyech or Jadon Sancho?
