A future star of Old Trafford?
Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Swansea winger Daniel James, with the Welshman signing a five-year deal at Old Trafford.
It was announced last week by the Red Devils that a fee had been agreed with Swansea for the transfer.
However, with the player on international duty, it was difficult to conclude the move.
Now, the deal is done, and Daniel James is a Manchester United player.
The Welshman scored an impressive five goals and assisted 10 in 38 appearances last season.
Considering he’s just 21, that’s a pretty good return.
Those performances netted him a move to Man United and Ole Gunnar Solskjær has praised James today.
