Red Devils set to make their first summer transfer

We're expecting a lot of transfer activity in the north west this summer, with Manchester United firmly in the hunt for new recruits after enduring one of their worst seasons in their modern history.

The Red Devils slumped to a sixth placed finish which means there'll be no Champions League football at Old Trafford in the upcoming campaign, so it's imperative that they get their recruitment on point over the coming months.

Unfortunately for Manchester United though, this hasn't been the case in recent seasons. They've been amongst the biggest spenders on both transfer fees and wages in European football which proves that money doesn't necessarily guarantee success.

A change in strategy is required and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear what he wants, with him looking to add young, hungry players to his squad. At the back end of the campaign he wasn't afraid to publicly question the mentality and attitude of his players, so along with new faces coming in, we're also expecting a bit of a clear out.

The Norwegian wants to move away from the big name marquee signings which have failed to deliver in the post Sir Alex era. The club have shelled out on the likes of Falcao, Angel Di Maria, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, all of whom have struggled to live up to their big price tags.

So a change is required and he's made his first signing as United boss, with Swansea City's Daniel James completing a £15m move to Old Trafford on Friday.

The 21 year-old may not be too familiar with fans of the Red Devils but he has a growing reputation in the game after a superb breakthrough season in the Championship, so it could prove to be a very shrewd piece of business. But what can the supporters expect from him?

Given the seal of approval by Giggs

At the start of the 2018/19 campaign Daniel James wasn't a name too familiar with football fans. The Swansea academy graduate made just one senior appearance prior to the season which came in The FA Cup, but City's relegation from the Premier League opened up the door for him to make his mark, which he's certainly done.

11 goal involvements (4G 7A) in 28 league starts makes very nice reading and reflects a superb breakthrough season. It wasn't enough to help the Swans into the play-offs but he's definitely making a name for himself, hence the pending transfer to Manchester United.

He came close to joining Leeds United back in January which fell through on deadline day, but it looks like it's could end up as a possible blessing in disguise if he makes the step up to the Premier League with the Red Devils.

He's one of the brightest prospects to come from the Championship so the £15m fee that's being mooted seems like a good deal all round, especially for United who've paid out some ridiculous fees in recent seasons.

James has grown in stature and confidence with each game he's played, which has led to international recognition for Wales - where he plays under Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs.

He's a firm believer in the youngsters ability and believes he has what it takes to succeed on his old stomping ground - praise doesn't get much better than that. And he's a very similar player to what Giggs was too, he's an old fashioned winger who loves to get chalk on his boots and he has blistering pace to go alongside it, something which United could do with at the moment.

Where will he fit in?

It's unlikely that James is going to come in and play every game week-in-week-out at Old Trafford, but his arrival certainly strengthens a problem area for the Red Devils.

United don't possess too many out-and-out wingers which has led to the likes of Lukaku and Juan Mata having to deputise on the flanks. James is comfortable on either side so his versatility could come in very handy over the course of the season.

The Welsh international will add trickery, blistering pace and some much needed excitement to this United side when he's on the pitch. Things turned really stale at the end of last season but this guy will certainly get the fans off their seats and go some way to getting them back on side.

James' ridiculous pace will make him a nightmare for Premier League full-backs

There appears to be a considerable divide between the fans and the club at the moment, so going for players in the mould of James could definitely be the way forward when it comes to re-building those bridges. He'll fight for the shirt and he's proven for Swansea this season, along with Wales, that he's capable of coming up with moments of quality.

His move to Manchester is expected to be completed imminently and it could prove to be a real steal for Solskjaer, in what will be his first transfer as Red Devils boss. This promises to be a big summer of spending at Old Trafford and it's going to be interesting to see who follows the 21 year-old through the door.
