Daniel James could be seen waiting at the Leeds Medical centre for his former club to complete the legal matters. But sadly that move didn’t get fulfilled and the player next season joined Manchester United. Daniel James while in Manchester United played a lot of the games during his first season. But during the next season with the signing of Bruno Fernandes, there was a change in the system benefiting Bruno.

While the game involvement of Mason Greenwood increasing last season, Daniel James involvement reduced drastically.
Currently, Daniel James is valued at £16.20m according to Transfermarkt.
