Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is worried that Manchester United summer signing Daniel James could suffer from burnout, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils boss is worried that the Wales international could suffer from a severe case of fatigue.

The same article states that Solskjaer is aware that James has already racked up a lot of minutes in all competitions so far this term.

According to the same story, the Manchester United manager is planning to give James a well-earned rest in the coming weeks.

The report goes on to quote a source from within Manchester United:

“Nobody can question Daniel’s attitude or fitness, but he has to be taken care of. We don’t want to see him sidelined with an injury due to fatigue.

“Ole is just making his mind up when to order him to put his feet up.”

James moved to Manchester United in a £17m deal from Championship side Swansea City in the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old has hit the ground running at Old Trafford despite making the step up from the second tier to the top tier.

James has scored three goals and has made two assists in 11 games in the Premier League so far this season.

The Welsh winger has also made three appearances in the Europa League and the League Cup.

Manchester United are in tenth place in the Premier League table and 10 points adrift of the top four.

The Red Devils signed three new players in the summer, including James.
