Despite interest from Leeds and Brighton, Manchester United has apparently decided to keep Daniel James. The winger’s game time is set to suffer as a result of Jadon Sancho’s arrival at Old Trafford, which comes after a season in which he was already on the outskirts.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
United could theoretically field two formidable offensive quartets with Sancho at their disposal, without James participating in any of them.
Sancho will be up against Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek, Marcus Rashford, and others for minutes next season.
According to The Sun, Rashford’s injury concerns are understood to be the cause for Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer’s decision to keep James in Manchester.
The England winger will undergo shoulder surgery, which will keep him out of the opening few games of the season.
Even with all of United’s established stars ahead of him in the pecking order, the Welshman will be put under pressure by the team’s budding youth.
Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri, both of whom cost the club a lot of money and have huge reputations, are likely to be knocking on the club’s door soon.
Despite interest from Brighton and Leeds for a permanent signing or a loan move, Solskjaer is said to be anxious to maintain hold of James.
The 23-year-old came agonizingly close to joining Leeds in January 2019, only for the deal to fall through at the last minute.
Although some raised an eyebrow when the Red Devils recruited James from the Championship, his blistering pace has proven to be a valuable asset for Solskjaer, even if his final product has frequently disappointed.
In 15 Premier League appearances last season, the winger scored just three goals.
Sancho’s arrival was officially confirmed on Friday, completing a £72.6 million deal.
One would expect the England winger to deliver for that type of money, and for the talent he possesses. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
