Well, it’s fair to say that Daniel James is certainly hot property at the moment. So, If Leeds can sign him this summer it’d be game-changing for their hope to re-establish themselves in the Premier League.
The Wales international has impressed at Swansea this season during his 33 appearances. In that time he’s scored four and assisted nine. As you’ll know by now, he’s electric down the wing and would speed up Leeds’ build-up play massively.
Strangely enough,a loan could be on the cards, Indeed, Team Talk have claimed the Whites would prefer any deal not to be permanent, with the 21-year-old believed to be costing around £15m. If they can push Man United out of pole position, which the report claims the Red Devils are in, it’d be massive for next season.
Ambitious, yes. But the Red Devils are a complete and utter mess and the Manchester Evening News even poured cold water over the idea of a move to the Theatre of Dreams.
For a Whites perspective, it’d send out a message that Leeds are well and truly on the way back and are looking to build a squad that can create a long-term future for the club. Bielsa also needs young players because they’re easier to mould into his style than seasoned pros.
He’s already playing under huge pressure for the national team, so it’s clear he can cope with that. Leeds fans expect big things next season, so he’ll have to perform right from the off. His confidence should help him do that with ease.
The England-born youngster could be part of the Leeds side that returns the club to where the fans believe it belongs. He’s certainly got the quality, so can the club tempt him to ignore the bright lights of Old Trafford and head to Yorkshire? We’ll see.
