When Manchester United signed Daniel James from Swansea City back in 2019, it must have stuck in the craw for Leeds United, who had previously agreed a deal with the player, only for the Swans to pull the plug at the last minute.
He made a decent start to life as a Manchester United as he managed three Premier League goals in his first four games, per Transfermarkt.
However, he hasn’t scored in the top flight since and, after gameweek 20 last term, he didn’t manage to provide any goal contributions in the division to add to his six assists, per Transfermarkt. This saw him dropped to the bench in the last seven matches of the campaign.
The 22-year-old looks short of confidence and the latest news might be a boost as Leeds want to sign him, and the only decision for the Red Devils to make is whether they want to sell him or loan him out, according to journalist Alan Nixon, via utdreport.
United must have noticed lots of potential in him when they signed him, so a loan move would possibly be more ideal, but the rumours have definitely caused a lot of debate from many supporters.
Here is what these fans said about James’ immediate future:

James needs more time to develop. Plus didn’t we steal him from Leeds last summer? pic.twitter.com/y1NfoyiBni

Keep him for another season, just makes sense because say if we do sign a winger and the winger gets injured, we aint going to spend on another winger

People wont agree with me but i think dan james needs to play his original position and have the backup role for rashford there’s a good player there and we just need to develop him also i think dan james right now is lacking the confidence and somewhat intelligence to play RW

For some reason selling Daniel James doesn’t sit right with me….
