Manchester United need a huge summer transfer window. Although it’ll take the Red Devils time to return to former glories, big money has to be spent.
Amongst the biggest areas of needs is signing a new right-winger. The Old Trafford club haven’t had anyone with real, consistent quality in that position since Cristiano Ronaldo left a decade ago.
You get the feeling that United are trying to get back to doing what they do best – signing youngsters and developing their talent. That perfectly explains their interest in Daniel James.
Today, in a report from the Manchester Evening News, it is being claimed that United have agreed terms with the 21-year-old, although the transfer is ‘on hold’ until mid-June due to the tragic passing of James’ father.
Sometimes in life things are bigger than football. United are rightly giving James all the time he needs before making anything official. The whole James family must be feeling so conflicted right now, as the winger all-but secured his big career move but on the flip side, they’re all in so much pain.
James will link up with Ryan Giggs’ Wales squad at the start of June for their games against Croatia and Hungary, with the MEN stating that it’s ‘likely’ United will confirm the move for the Swansea City attacker shortly after those matches.
He’s a player that I don’t know an awful lot about other than the fact that he’s fast and highly sought-after. Hopefully, he makes an impact on United’s pre-season tour and earns himself a regular place within the first-team squad from the get-go.
