Shocking: Man Utd attacker is ‘close to a permanent switch to Leeds
Leeds United are reportedly in advanced talks with bitter rivals Manchester United over a permanent deal for Daniel James.
The Wales winger almost moved to Elland Road two years ago from Swansea before the deal collapsed late on.
But now with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo limiting James‘ minutes even further
the Guardian report that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are closing in on a permanent deal.
The 23-year-old has been used sparingly by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and along with the return of Ronaldo
the £73million move for Jadon Sancho pushes him down the pecking order.
James started the 1-0 win away at Wolves on Sunday but he now looks close to an Old Trafford exit as negotiations are reportedly ongoing to finalize a fee, as well as personal terms over a deal in Yorkshire.
He has three years left to run on his deal in Manchester and the expectation is that they will ask for a fee in the region of £20m.
