Manchester United move closer to first summer signing as James agrees personal terms

Manchester United could be close to completing their first signing of the summer with reports claiming Daniel James has agreed personal terms.

The Swansea City winger has been linked with a move to Manchester United for a number of weeks, but according to Sky Sports today, he has now agreed personal terms ahead of a reported £15 million move, although the clubs are yet to formally agree to a deal.

Despite being 21, James actually has very little first-team experience, making his first professional appearance in February 2018 in Swansea’s 8-1 win over Notts County.

He has established himself as a first team regular for Swansea this season, making 37 appearances in all competitions for Graham Potter’s side, scoring five goals, including a fine solo effort against Brentford in the FA Cup, as well as putting in a notable performance against Man City.

James, who is currently training with Ryan Giggs’ Wales National Team in a training camp in the Algarve, Portugal, was heavily linked with a move to Man Utd’s bitter rivals, Leeds, during the January transfer window, but saw a move to Marcelo Bielsa’s side breakdown on deadline day.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was thought to be keen on landing Jadon Sancho this summer, but United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League is likely to see the former Man City academy product remain at Borussia Dortmund.
