Young Daniel James made a decent start to his life as a Manchester United and Premier League player last season 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 game week 20 last term, he didn’t manage to provide any goal contributions in the division after adding six assists to his tally, per Transfermarkt. In the last seven matches last campaign he was dropped to the bench, but in the first game of the new season, he was trusted with a start.
However it did not go to plan as the Red Devils lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace and the Welshman only picked up a 6.5 rating, which was the third lowest out of the starting eleven. per SofaScore.
This poor form has perhaps seen other sides look to keep an eye on his future and Leeds United could make some sort of offer for him as the latest news from Leeds Live, via utdreport, suggests that Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa is a strong admirer of the winger and he is looking to add another wide player to his squad.
A loan could do James the world of good if he managed to play consistently as he could pick up some confidence and form before returning to United feeling a lot better about his situation.

I doubt we sell him but if we do then we’d need to bring in 2 wingers in the next 15 days. Just isn’t going to happen

Just let them have him for free

Loan with option to buy, slap a big tag on it though. Although, personally I’d keep him, he’s shown signs of what he can do both for us and Wales, he’s certainly a product for the future.

Sell the lad with a buy back clause cos he’s deffo gonna rip it up once he leaves us and we will want him back after a season or two 😂

We shouldn’t sell him, can’t sell him now, we should still watch him this season, we need him for depth, he should be played more on the left, we can’t reduce depth at this point.

he should be allowed to go on loan instead of him being sold to Leeds United
