Manchester United set to secure second signing after capture of Ajax star

Manchester United are reportedly close to reaching a deal for Swansea City ace Daniel James, according to the Evening Standard. 

The winger is a wanted man at Old Trafford, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer kicks his revolution at the English giants. 

James has been a revelation for the Welsh side this past season, managing to score six goals and seven assists in 39 appearances for the club. 

The Red Devils have been discussing a possible move and were particularly stuck at the transfer fee, with Swansea asking for a figure of around £20 million, while United are willing to give half the price.

Swansea were in no rush to sell one of their prized assets and were willing to wait even further, with Monaco's interest in the winger pushing United to act fast. 

If the deal materializes, James will be the second player to sign for United this season, after the club captured Ajax's youngster Dillon Hoogewerf late last week. 

Solskjaer is keen on injecting fresh blood into his side in his first full season in charge at United, and has been linked to a host of key players across Europe. 

His camp is also a target from other teams, with the likes of Real Madrid, Inter Milan, PSG, and Juventus all linked with some of his key players, who, interestingly want out.
