Manchester United confirm signing of Daniel James

Manchester United confirm signing of Daniel James

It is expected to have cost them around 18 million pounds.

The deal was set to be completed a fortnight ago but got delayed due to the Swansea star's family issues as Manchester United put talks on hold to allow Daniel James appropriate time to deal with the situation.

Swansea City winger Daniel James is undergoing a medical ahead of joining Manchester United, according to the Daily Telegraph.

In January he nearly joined Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United for £10m, having completed a medical, only for his deadline-day move to collapse at the last minute after a late disagreement between the two clubs.

James has won two caps for the Red Dragons under Giggs this year since switching his iternational allegiance from England.

The United boss is now plotting his first summer of transfer activity since being appointed at Old Trafford, with the Norwegian keen to secure a core of young British talent who have room to develop.

His Wales manager Ryan Giggs gave the youngster permission to have a medical at Carrington during this worldwide break and believes his former club are getting an "exciting" player.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has targeted a host of homegrown players he wants to weave into his squad as he plots a rebuild at Old Trafford following a disappointing sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

James' move to United is complete but an official announcement may have to wait until Wales' Euro 2020 qualifier against Hungary on Tuesday.

As for Allen's comments, Leeds fans won't like to hear them, but the potential of James is undeniably huge.

"He is a talent and when you have speed like that as well as the temperament that he has, he could play anywhere", Giggs said of James last month.
