Manchester United fans mostly excited over Daniel James signing

Manchester United fans have reacted to the official announcement of Daniel James’ signing with excitement, although some have attempted to be more reserved.

The youngster is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer first signing in what is arguably the club’s most important summer since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

James has added some much needed depth to United’s right-wing, an area that has been neglected for quite some time now.

Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata have often been shoved out wide but both have preferred more central roles, meaning a natural winger was essential.

Daniel’s potential is limitless but there have been question marks over his ability to make the leap from the Championship, leaving fans with a rather mixed reaction.

Solskjaer has quickly moved to address the Red Devils’ imbalanced attack as it has often been lopsided, leaning towards the left flank.

With both Lingard and Mata moving in centrally and the ageing Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young both often opting to remain in their own half, it has frequently led to a predictable attacking tactic.

Now with James on board, it should mean Manchester United have more variety in their attacks, potentially leading to better results.

Since Ole has addressed one weakness in the squad, fans are now hopeful he’ll turn his attentions elsewhere to some more desperate positions such as the defence.
