Man United’s Daniel James joins Leeds in £25m deal

Daniel James

Leeds United have agreed a £25m fee with Manchester United for winger Daniel James.

James is currently undergoing a Leeds medical before flying out to Finland with the rest of the Wales squad for an international friendly.

Personal terms at Leeds are not expected to be a problem, with all parties hopeful a deal can be concluded before Tuesday’s 11pm deadline.

The 23-year-old Wales international winger has started two of United’s first three Premier League matches of the season, including Sunday’s 1-0 win at Wolves.

However, the impending return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford would impact James’ minutes, with Leeds, who the forward almost joined before signing for United in 2019, looking to bring him in.

As it stands, Jesse Lingard will remain at Manchester United and the club would be happy if the England international stays at the club.

If an offer was to arrive in the final hours, it will be discussed with Lingard and a collective decision will be made.
