Manchester United on the verge of completing first summer signing for £20m

Manchester United are reportedly on the cusp of acquiring the signature of Daniel James from Championship outfit Swansea City.

The Red Devils are expected to go on a spending spree after a dismal Premier League campaign where they could only finish sixth.

One of the priorities for the summer has been highlighted as the wider attacking department and the club seem to be making inroads towards strengthening the same.

According to Evening Standard, the club are close to acquiring the services of Daniel James from Swansea City for a £15m fee which could potentially rise to £20m with performance-based add-ons.

The same publication reveals that Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho has been their prime target for the summer but the German club’s reluctance to sell has meant that they have pursued the Championship winger.

James has enjoyed an impressive breakthrough season at the South Welsh outfit and his performances during the backend have certainly caught the eye of the talent-spotters at United.

Still, judging by his showing, it can be noted that he has found most of his success on the left side of the attack (whoscored), and that does not remain a problematic position for United compared to the opposite flank.

Regardless of this, the club appear to be placing their emphasis on young and promising prospects this summer, and Ole seems keen on completing most of the transfer business before the club’s pre-season in July.
