Manchester United have announced they have agreed a deal, in principle, to sign Daniel James from Swansea.

James subsequently becomes the record 20-time English champions first major acquisition before the 2019/20 season - a rare signing for them from a Championship club.

The Red Devils have confirmed to have agreed a deal with Swansea to sign the Welsh worldwide in the summer, with James already passing the medical.

'Further details will be communicated once the worldwide transfer window opens next week'. The speculation started after the Swansea winger ended his 2018-19 campaign with 4 goals and 9 assists in the Championship, showcasing his raw pace, directness and ability to influence proceedings.

The 21-year-old winger had been linked with the Mancunian giants for weeks now and United will be relieved to secure a forward player as their other high-profile pursuits have allegedly failed.

'AB de Villiers should be a man'
I was offered millions of dollars to play in the ICL and was told not to play for Pakistan but I did not do that. Gibson said his team is more anxious about their performance rather than focusing too much on this controversy.

Evening Standard reports that Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser as his first choice winger signing, but had to settle for Daniel James in the end.

"But guess what? Manchester United don't need guys for the future right now".

The former United striker has focused his attention on young British players in a bid to revamp his side and he believes James will be ready to step up to the Premier League.

"He primarily plays off the left-wing".

The capture of James and the interest in players like Sancho and Rice is more evidence of United's changing transfer policy that now puts greater emphasis on developing domestic talent, rather than established overseas stars after buying a number of expensive flops since 2013. But, Solskjaer's system and his tactical style made James the flawless fit at United.
