Manchester United are only details away from securing their first signing of the 2019/20 season. According to several reports, The Red Devils have reached an agreement with Swansea City in order to acquire Welsh winger Daniel James.
The Premier League giants confirmed the news on their official website through a statement that read “Manchester United is delighted to announce that it has agreed, in principle, terms with both Swansea and Daniel James for his transfer to the club. Daniel has successfully completed a medical at the Aon Training Complex. Further details will be communicated once the international transfer window opens next week.”
For what is worth, Swansea also announced on their official website that all parties had reached a complete agreement, adding: “The transfer is expected to be completed when FIFA’s international transfer window opens from June 11.”
James might not look like a star signing given he comes from a Championship outfit, but there’s no question he has enough talent and skill to become a threatening player at the Premier League level. In fact, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola heralded James when The Citizens took on The Swans during the FA Cup earlier this year.
The Wales international registered four goals and nine assists in 33 appearances for Swansea during the 2018/19 Championship season.
