Swansea ‘hoping Man Utd will start bidding war’ for James

Swansea are hopeful that Manchester United’s interest in Daniel James will spark a bidding war between clubs keen to sign the winger.

Last Friday, it was reported that James was heading to Old Trafford for a round £15million before other sources suggested that United’s interest was genuine but no bid had yet been submitted.

Those stories appear to have done Swansea a favour, with the Championship club keen to sell the 21-year-old Wales winger to the highest bidder this summer.

Beverley-born James, who was minutes from sealing a move to Leeds on deadline day in January, has a year remaining on his contract at the Liberty Stadium and the Swans are hoping to cash in while they can.

The Mirror reports that Swansea are keen to see Newcastle, Everton and Leeds – should they be promoted – all show their hand in the hope of attracting an offer in excess of the £15million United were said to have offered.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked about James before the miserable home defeat to Cardiff on Sunday.
