Manchester United have recently confirmed that they have agreed a deal, in principle, to sign Swansea winger, Daniel James.
The Welshman has been hugely impressive for the Swans in his breakthrough season with the Championship side.
He netted four goals and assisted on seven occasions as Swansea finished 10th in their first season back in the second-tier of English football.
It has been revealed by the Daily Mail that James’ wages are set to receive a boost from £4,000 to £67,000 when his move to Manchester United is completed.
James’ imminent arrival at Old Trafford is set to be met with much intrigue as to whether he can adjust to the step up of the Premier League.
But if he can take the form he has shown towards the end of last season, then the Red Devils have got some player on their hands who could go on to play a starring role in the future.
It had previously been revealed by Sky Sports that James had agreed personal terms, but at one stage, the deal looked in doubt after French side, AS Monaco registered their interest in signing the 21-year-old.
Manchester United have won the race to sign him though and he’ll be keen to hit the ground running for one of the biggest teams in world football.
I’m not surprised by this.
James is a player with real quality and that’s clear to see if Manchester United are paying almost £20m for him.
If he can hit the ground running at Old Trafford, then his price will only rise, which will see an increase in wages as well.
A player with a bright future ahead of him, who will be keen to take his impressive run of form into next year’s campaign in the Premier League.
