Door opened for Leeds to sign Daniel James, open to offers - ESPN

Leeds United have finally had the door opened to sign Manchester United winger Daniel James this summer.

ESPN have shared that the Red Devils are now open to offers for the Welsh international as we enter the final month of the window.

Our first opponents of the season have spent more than £100million this summer, and easily lead the way for most spent.

It is unknown how much it would take.

Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa are long-term admirers, that is no secret, especially after we failed with that famous move a couple of years ago.

Atleast we know that James would likely welcome a move to Elland Road, even after being at Old Trafford after Swansea.

Manchester United clearly need to dell players, with James one of those who have been made available for the right time.


Bielsa will be sitting back and likely asking Victor Orta and his team to get this deal across the line in the next month.

Phil Hay reported that he has the feeling that Leeds will forever be interested in James, and that goes hand-in-hand with this update.

With names such as Noa Lang and Adama Traore also mentioned, Orta will be narrowing down his options as the month goes on.

A move for any winger is set to go down to the wire, with a midfielder to priority at Elland Road.

It could be James, and we expect that now the door has been opened, talks could start to progress very quickly if they are started.
