Manchester United have completed the signing of Wales winger Daniel James on an initial five-year deal from Swansea City for around £15m.
Wales winger, Daniel James has now officially joined Manchester United after the two clubs agreed on a deal of about £15m initially, last week. He has joined from Swansea City on a five-year deal, with an option to extend a year further.
Swansea academy graduate James scored five goals in 38 appearances during a breakthrough 2018-19 season. He is now officially Manchester United’s first signing of the summer of 2019.
Daniel James said: “This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to. The Premier League is the best league in the world and Manchester United is the perfect place for me to continue to develop as a player.
This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family, however, it is tinged with sadness that my father isn’t able to share this experience with us. I am looking forward to working with Ole, meeting the team and getting started.”
Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Daniel is an exciting young winger with lots of skills, vision, exceptional pace and a good work ethic. He had a great season with Swansea City and has all the attributes needed to become a Manchester United player.
We are delighted he has signed with our club and we are all looking forward to working with him. This is the perfect environment for Daniel to continue his development.”
