Manchester United are closing in on their first summer signing with a move to land Daniel James from Swansea City, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Red Devils have agreed a £15m deal with the Welsh side to sign the promising 21-year-old midfielder.

The same article states that there is an agreement in place that will see James move from the Championship side to the Premier League’s most successful club.

According to the same story, Manchester United managed to see off competition from their Premier League rivals Brighton, Everton and Newcastle United to land James.

The Daily Mail report goes on to claim that Solskjaer is planning to use James on the right wing of his Manchester United team, although the Wales international can play in the centre and on the left.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of different players in the summer transfer window as Solskjaer looks to revamp his Red Devils squad.

The 20-time English champions finished in sixth place in the Premier League to make a disappointing end to the Premier League campaign.

Manchester United have only managed to qualify for the Champions League in two of the six league seasons since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.
