Manchester United fans encouraged by Daniel James transfer news

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United supporters have expressed their delight at reports claiming the club is close to signing Daniel James from Swansea City.

Sky Sports have claimed Man United are on the verge of striking a deal worth £15m for the 21-year-old winger, who has enjoyed an excellent campaign at the Liberty Stadium.

The move signals a marked departure from the club’s widely criticised tendency to sign marquee names who fail to fit within a particular profile or long-term plan.

Supporters have voiced their enthusiasim at seeing the club opt for a totally different kind of signing.

This signing is sensible to the point where it is hard to believe. United does not make specialised acquisitions such as these. United signs Angel Di Maria for a manager who hates dribbling. United gives Ashley Young a one-year extension whilst letting Ander Herrera leave for free. United signs more noodle partners than centre-backs.

On this occasion, though, they’ve made a good call: a young, hungry, rapid wide player who, under the right conditions, could develop into an incisive source of vitality for United. The club – and Solksjaer especially – has clearly had a close look at this player, and like what they see. It could mark the beginning of a change in the tone of United’s transfer strategy.
