Manchester United have not agreed terms with Swansea City’s Daniel James and they still haven’t made an official bid for the player.
That’s according to Wales Online, although they do state that Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s men are leading the chase for the talented 21-year-old.
It had been revealed by Sky Sports that personal terms had been sorted between the Wales international and the Red Devils, indicating that a deal was at a very advanced stage.
However, the latest update suggests that’s not the case, whilst the report also claims that no other Premier League sides have firmed up their interest with a serious approach for the player.
That includes Brighton, who had been linked with James after they appointed Graham Potter as manager.
Potter was in charge of the Swans and gave James his big breakthrough this season, with the flying winger impressing throughout the Championship campaign, which also saw him earn international recognition.
The youngster had looked set to join Leeds United in January before a move fell through late on.
This update indicates that the earlier talk about James was premature but it still seems very likely that he will end up as a Manchester United player.
It’s a great move for him providing it does go through and he does have the talent to make an impact in the first-team at Old Trafford next season.
Now, a fee needs to be agreed, which shouldn’t be a problem and personal terms are not going to be an issue either. So, it does seem like this will get done, even if more patience is needed.
