It feels unlikely that there will be anymore arrivals at Manchester United this summer with the transfer window set to slam shut. But on the other hand, the club have confirmed a permanent transfer exit today while rumours swirl about the futures of a few other.

But that should not come as a surprise considering the signings that the club have made. The Red Devils were already enjoying a brilliant transfer window having signed Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaton. The late addition of Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to take things to the next level though and make them one of the favourites for the Premier League title.

Now, Manchester United have confirmed on their official website that Daniel James has completed a permanent transfer to Leeds United.

James had joined the club in the summer of 2019 from Swansea City and made an incredible start to life at Old Trafford by scoring against Chelsea on his debut. Interestingly, he had been linked with a move to Leeds United back in 2019 as well before he had joined the Red Devils.

James has departed Manchester United on a permanent deal

James had played a decent amount of football during his time at Old Trafford even if he was not a regular in the starting XI. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he made 74 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring and assisting 9 times each.

James had started two of the club’s three Premier League games this season till now. But at the end of the day, following the arrival of Ronaldo and Sancho this summer, he would not be expected to get a lot of first-team minutes on the pitch this season considering the depth of the squad.

Thus, a move away makes sense for both the player and the club. He certainly has the qualities to be a success in Marcelo Bielsa’s style of football. We would like to wish him the best of luck for his future.
