Manchester United have kicked off what is expected to be a busy summer with the announcement of a new signing.
The new player of arguably England’s most successful club is 21-year-old Wales international, Daniel James who completed his transfer from Swansea City in a deal worth £15 million ($19m) over a five-year contract.
The pacy winger, who scored five goals and contributed 10 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions in the Championship during the just-ended season, is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first addition since his arrival as manager in December 2018.
In an official statement confirming James’s arrival, the club said: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that it has agreed, in principle, terms with both Swansea City 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.”
James came through the youth system at Hull City before joining Swansea for a nominal compensation fee of £72,000 in 2014 and will meet his new teammates for the first time on July 1 when players report for pre-season training ahead of the summer tour to Australia and Asia.
