Daniel James has impressed during Wales’ first two games in the Euros, which may spark further interest after recent links to Leicester City, but former Hull City star, Dean Windass, can’t see Manchester United letting him go.
James, 23, got a huge move from Swansea City to Man United in the summer of 2019 and after a solid debut campaign, he found first-team starts a lot more difficult to come by last term, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handing the winger just 11 in the Premier League.
Leeds famously thought they had signed him in January 2019, only for Swansea to pull the plug on the potential deal on Deadline Day, despite James having signed everything and already taken pictures holding the shirt.
Man United appear to have their sights set on landing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, which could be a huge worry for James’ future at Old Trafford but, despite this, Windass can’t see the Red Devils letting him go, which he exclusively said to Football FanCast:
“I can’t see Ole letting him go because he’s still a young lad who is learning and he’s doing very well for Wales so I can’t see Man United letting him go.”
James would no doubt love to become a regular at Man United, however, he appears to be a long way behind the likes of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and also Sancho, if the England international does arrive at Old Trafford this summer.
It may be a case of giving it one more season to prove that he is good enough because he is certainly a great impact player for the Red Devils to have considering his lighting quick pace, which he showcased for Wales against Turkey in the Euros.
