Manchester United has wrapped up the signing of Wales international Daniel James from Swansea on five-year deal with the option of an extra 1 year.
The Red Devils announced that they had sealed a deal to sign James yesterday, with an initial fee believed to be around £15 million, potentially rising to £22m.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had this to say about the new winger, “Daniel is an exciting young winger with lots of skills, vision, exceptional pace and a good work ethic,”
“He had a great season with Swansea City and has all the attributes needed to become a Manchester United player.
“We are delighted he has signed with our club and we are all looking forward to working with him. This is the perfect environment for Daniel to continue his development.”
James himself also said, “This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to. The Premier League is the best league in the world and Manchester United is the perfect place for me to continue to develop as a player.
“This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family, however, it is tinged with sadness that my father isn’t able to share this experience with us. I am looking forward to working with Ole, meeting the team and getting started.”
