James joins Manchester United on 5-year deal

James's transfer to Manchester United completes remarkable rise

Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Swansea City winger Daniel James, on a five-year deal.

He is also the first signing since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as manager in December.

Daniel's potential is limitless but there have been question marks over his ability to make the leap from the Championship, leaving fans with a rather mixed reaction.

It is believed the Manchester club identified James as an improvement for the right wing after a recommendation from former United winger Ryan Giggs, who is coaching James at global level with Wales.

Since Ole has addressed one weakness in the squad, fans are now hopeful he'll turn his attentions elsewhere to some more desperate positions such as the defence. And the 21-year-old has admitted he can not wait to get started.

'This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to, ' said James who only made his professional debut for Swansea in February a year ago.

In signing for United the 21-year old has realised a childhood dream but it's mixed emotions for James as his father died suddenly aged 60 prior to the transfer going through.

"This is one of the best days of my life and a challenge I am really looking forward to", he said after the signing.

'This is an incredibly proud moment for me and my family, however, it is tinged with sadness that my father isn't able to share this experience with us.

Meanwhile, he will have a little less pressure and time to adjust as Manchester United were unable to finish among the top four and will not play in next term's intense Champions League.

James told manutd.com: "Last season I didn't think I was going to get much first-team football".

"He is a level-headed lad who has huge ability and I am sure he wants to show it at the highest level he can. This is the flawless environment for Daniel to continue his development".
