Leeds fans react as transfer target reportedly nears Manchester United move

Daniel James is expected to sign for the Red Devils this summer.

Manchester United are set to start their summer transfer business by completing a £15 million deal to sign Swansea winger Dan James, according to Sky Sports.

The 21-year-old is very close to penning terms at Old Trafford and will become Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first signing as manager of the club.

James’ career very nearly took a different path. In January, Leeds had practically agreed on a deal to sign the Wales international (Sky Sports), but the Swans pulled the plug at the eleventh hour.

Signing for Leeds’ fiercest rival hasn’t really seen him adhered to the Whites faithful. Marcelo Bielsa’s men must tackle the play-offs in order to win promotion and some fans feel that James could have led them to a top-two finish.

James joining United will surely sting Leeds supporters. His quality is evident and he could have been a superb player for the Whites had the deal gone through.

The versatile winger doesn’t have a great record though and some Leeds fans aren’t overly fussed that he isn’t rocking up at Elland Road. James has just four goals and seven assists to his name and some Whites don’t see that as value for money.

It remains to be seen what sort of career he goes onto have but for now, the reaction among Leeds supporters is mixed. We rounded up the best tweets in relation to the news of James’ pending move:
