Daniel James set for Leeds United permanent move

Leeds United are closing in on a club record £30m deal to sign Manchester United winger Daniel James.

The Peacocks coach Marcelo Bielsa has been keeping a close eye on Daniel James.

He has been monitoring him ever since the Welshman’s move to Elland Road from Swansea collapsed in January 2019.

James subsequently joined United that summer and has scored nine goals in 74 appearances for the Red Devils.

Leeds were thinking about making a move during the last summer window but brought in Brazilian Raphinha instead.

However, with Daniel James facing an uncertain Manchester United future once the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus is confirmed, Bielsa has gone back in for the 23-year-old.

It is understood a fee has been agreed in principle, with only the final details remaining to be completed.

The fee would be a club record for the West Yorkshire side.

It will eclipse the 29m euro (£24.8m) they paid Valencia for striker Rodrigo 12 months ago.
