Manchester United are close to agreeing their first signing of the summer transfer window.

According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils are close to agreeing a a £15m deal to sign Daniel James from Swansea City.

Other sources claim, the Welsh winger is also being targeted by the likes of Everton, Newcastle, and Leeds, the side he almost joined in the January window.

James started his footballing career at Hull City’s youth academy, where he was a highly regarded prospect. He made his move to Swansea in 2014 for an initial fee of £72,000.

The Welshman is known for his lightning-quick speed and agility, and he also possesses a bag of tricks up his sleeve. In fact, his pace was hailed by none other than Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, who incidentally handed James his first international senior cap as Wales manager, against Albania in November 2018.

United have reportedly made checks regarding the winger’s ability to play on the right wing, which suggests Daniel will be brought in to address and fix the long-standing absence of a proper right winger at the Old Trafford outfit.
