Video: Goal Shows Exactly Why Daniel James is Linked With Manchester United

This goal shows exactly why Daniel James is being linked with a move to Manchester United.

The Swansea attacker has had a great season under manager Graham Potter despite his side failing to gain promotion to the Premier League.

The Swans finished the campaign in 10th, but should feel proud that they made a lot of progress with a very young squad.

And James has been at the forefront of this, scoring seven goals and assisting eight in 31 games.

James is also now a Wales international, earning his first cap at the end of last year before scoring on his second appearance in March.

Is that all enough to warrant a move to United? Maybe not.

But when you watch James in action, you can see why the report is there.

Just take a look at this goal James scored against Brentford earlier this season:

That sort of player would fit right in at United.

If United do move for James this summer then you’d assume he would cost more than the £10million Swansea agreed in a failed move with Leeds back in January.
