LEEDS CONTINUE UNITED MIDFIELDER HUNT
Premier League club Leeds United have already started making a list of the players they would like to sign in the summer and it is already looking like an interesting list even though there has not been any major transfer bid for any player yet. Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa is currently happy with his squad but when asked if the club would engage in any transfer business this summer, he said they would only be signing players he feels they need and will help the team.
The player currently topping their shopping list is Manchester United winger Daniel James. The pacy speedster has been a topic of transfer speculations so fat this season and a lot of reports have been linking him with a move away from Old Trafford. He has had to battle for a place in the United team with Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial this season and when those two are fit it becomes hard for the young Welsh star to make it to the starting team.
Bielsa looks set to offer the former Swansea City winger an escape route by trying to take him to Elland Road in the summer, but the move may not end up happening. It was reported that James expressed his desire to leave United after the Red Devils signed Amad Diallo from Italian Serie A outfit Atalanta in January.
However, even though James has still played more games for United than Diallo this season, it is believed that he would still like to leave the club.
