“As a player we feel Daniel is an excellent fit for a Marcelo Bielsa team, he is quick, direct and works hard — we look forward to him joining up with the squad, finally!”

James was signed by United in 2019 from Swansea City for some 18 million pounds and made 33 league appearances in his debut season but the 23-year-old has seen his playing time reduced since.

With the Old Trafford club signing Jadon Sancho for 85 million euros ($100.51 million) and Cristiano Ronaldo making his return, James’s chances of nailing a spot in the starting lineup were slim.
