Manchester United winger Daniel James joins Leeds United. The arrival of Club legend Cristiano Ronaldo has led to the departure of Welsh international James.
Manchester United and Leeds have agreed on a £25m fee for the winger. According to Sky Sports, Daniel James is currently completing his medical. He will be flying out to Finland for the World Cup qualifiers along with the rest of the Wales squad. Meanwhile, Dan James has already agreed personal terms with Leeds United. The signing would be announced before the 11 pm deadline.
Daniel James started two of United’s first three Premier League games. However, it seems like the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has led the team to trim down their attacking options. James almost joined Leeds back in 2019 before completing his move to Manchester United. Instead, they signed Brazilian winger Raphinha. Meanwhile, this would be a club-record signing for the West Yorkshire side beating the signing of Rodrigo. United paid Swansea £15m for his signature in 2019.
James scored on his Manchester United debut against Chelsea. After scoring in the next two games against Crystal Palace and Southampton he had a very quiet spell. Daniel James made 74 appearances for United scoring 9 goals.

West Ham had shown interest in Jesse Lingard. Lingard spent last season at West Ham on a loan and arguably was one of the best players in the league. The London side were willing to sign him but didn’t make an offer.
