It has been rumored for days, and it will be finished by 11 pm on Tuesday - Daniel James is becoming the most expensive paid football player in the history of Leeds! On Sunday afternoon, he was a member of the starting lineup of Manchester United, which defeated Wolverhampton away with a minimum of 1: 0, he was changed in the 53rd minute by Edinson Cavani and thus practically said goodbye to the club where he spent the last two years.
He didn't play, he didn't even become famous, but at least he will bring United a great profit! Namely, Leeds will pay 35,000,000 euros for his services, which is practical twice as much money as what United gave to Swansea in July 2019 (17,780,000 euros)!
Negotiations are in the final phase and it is announced from several sides in England that the work will be completed by Tuesday evening at the latest. He will sign a five-year contract at the new address and become the most expensive investment in the club's history.
The current record is held by Rodrigo when Leeds bought him from Valencia last summer for 30,000,000 euros.
James' departure to Leeds will also trigger a chain reaction within the club. Namely, as soon as James leaves the club, his jersey with the number "21" will be taken by Edinson Cavani in order to release the number 7 he is wearing now to Cristiano Ronaldo!
The Portuguese has passed a medical test earlier today and settled all the details of the cooperation with the club where he started his stellar rise 18 years ago, and the confirmation of this transfer in the form of a photo with a jersey - United has already made the transfer official on the official website - is probably still missing.
, that is, to give Ronaldo number seven that made him famous throughout his career. James played 74 games in two seasons, and he ended his stay at the Dream Theater with the effect of nine goals and assists. At the start of the new championship, he has already registered two appearances and 128 minutes, but he will not stay long.
Many feel that United has done a great job and that it is best for both James and United to complete a joint adventure. Just a couple of years ago when United signed James, Leeds United was the one who was interested in James, there was even a picture with the jersey, but in the end, it didn't happen. But Leeds waited patiently and greeted James
