Daniel James’ Father’s Death Puts Man United Move on Hold

May 23, 2019

Daniel James’ transfer move to Manchester United has been hit by a family tragedy. Just a few hours after Swansea City and United agreed to a £15 million deal for the winger, his current club confirmed the sad news that James’ father had died.

A statement issued by the South Wales club said: “Everyone at Swansea City has been saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Daniel James’ father.”

The 60-year-old had been struggling with an illness, but none of his family members expected him to die so suddenly.

The Red Devils have agreed to put the transfer move on hold to allow James and his family enough time and space to deal with the loss.

James had an incredible season at Swansea, which saw him attracting interest from Man United, Brighton, and Pep Guardiola, who coached Manchester City to Premier League victory for the second time in a row.

The 21-year old winger scored six goals and seven assists in 38 games for Swansea, and also attained his first Wales cap in November – making him one of the most currently sought after youngsters around.

Man United are reportedly willing to wait for the young emerging star.
