Manchester United signing Jadon Sancho could spell the end of Daniel James
The Welsh international enjoyed a fine start to life at United. However, he has since failed to hit the same heights and has fallen down the pecking order.
This even saw him linked with a move away the previous summer. The likes of Leeds United were keen on securing his services.
James has played in just five matches this season. He is yet to make a goal contribution this campaign. It is fair to say that he will have to perform when he gets the opportunity to remain an asset to the club.
In Sancho, United have a potential world-beater who is already established at the top level. We were constantly linked with a move for him in the summer but were unable to land him.
It would appear that the club still remains keen on securing the English international. Dortmund for their part were ready to part ways with the player if their asking price of £108million was met.
Given the financial hit the club have taken due to the coronavirus, it is perhaps understandable that Ed Woodward refused to accede to the German side’s demand.
If cash was indeed the issue, Untied could free up the funds by selling five players in January. Apart from James, this list includes Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo, Paul Pogba, and Juan Mata.

Selling all five players could see United land as much as £100million. This should ease our pursuit of Sancho assuming we make one at all.
There is still a month and a half to go before the window opens. It remains to be seen if any new development will impact our business in the new year.
