Dan James sends message to Manchester United fans
Dan James has posted a goodbye message to Manchester United supporters.
James’ move to Leeds was confirmed by the club earlier on deadline day.
The winger said the move to United from Swansea helped him grow as a player and a person.
United made a profit
Manchester United ended up making a profit on Dan James after agreeing to cash in.
United paid £15 million to sign James from Swansea City back in June 2019.
Two years and 74 matches later, United sold James to Leeds for £25 million.
James almost signed for Leeds months before his move to Old Trafford, with the move breaking down.
Now he has made the move to Elland Road, which is a club better suited to his career development right now as he will have a better chance to play regularly.
Competition for places at Manchester United is intense and it would have got tougher in the future for James with the likes of Amad, Anthony Elanga and Facundo Pellistri all looking to push on.
James played an important role for United in terms of the attitude Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted from his players on the pitch, and the manager will be looking for the same level of commitment from those remaining at Old Trafford.
