Manchester United eased to a 4-0 win over Leeds United in Australia despite a brave performance from the Championship side – and United fans have raved over new signing Dan James.
James, 21, completed an £18million (Telegraph) move to Old Trafford at the start of the summer from Swansea City, after coming within an inch of joining Leeds in January.
The Wales international is said to have passed a medical at Elland Road in January, only for a move to fall through with Swansea changing their asking price at the last minute – before January’s deadline struck.
James started the match for United and impressed during the first half, showing some excellent bursts of pace with and without the ball and contributing well in attack. Still only 21, the future looks bright for the Welsh ace.
Stuart Dallas failed to cope with the pace of James, with the United star said to have topped the speed charts during pre-season this summer at United. He came off at half-time, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer swapped his entire eleven.
Manchester United fans reacted to James’ display during the first 45 and the majority were very impressed with their new signing, and excited at seeing him a red shirt for years to come.
