The Welshman has been highly sought after of late but emerged as a surprise candidate to solve the club’s attacking woes next season.
United are in need of a right-winger given the lack of natural options on that flank and the youngster fits the mould of player they’re interested in signing.
James would hopefully resolve this issue and his signing would signal Solskjaer’s attempt to address his side’s weaknesses.
According to Football Insider, Daniel is expected to undergo a medical as early as next week ahead of completing a move to the Red Devils.
The figure being mentioned of late is close to £15m which, although is low, the club could’ve potentially held out for less considering his contract only has a year left on it.
Nonetheless, James is a relative unknown to most Manchester United fans so it’ll be interesting to see what he can bring to the starting XI.
