According to Ferdinand, Daniel James was never a Man Utd standard
23-year-old Daniel James has never been Man Utd Standard says Ferdinand, with the Wales international winger, said the £ 25 million transfer to Leeds would prove beneficial to all concerned.
What did Ferdinand say about Daniel James?
Two and a half years after Daniel James missed the move to Elland Road on the day of the deadline, he contacted Leeds on a big money deal. His qualities are expected to be better on Bielsa’s plans than under Solskjaer, with Rio Ferdinand saying that the man who made 74 appearances for the Red Devils was never quite ready to step away from Swansea.
Rio, who spent time with Leeds and Man Utd during his playing days, talked about Traffic Jams moving to West Yorkshire, that they had been on it for centuries, they wanted this boy for a while. Rio Ferdinand doesn’t think James is the Manchester United standard, but he is definitely the Premier League standard and the way Leeds plays will be a problem for several teams.
The child on this team will receive the ball and move forward quickly, and this suits his game. When you have to break two pots out of four, like Manchester United, which doesn’t suit Daniel James’s game, he loves space. Leeds Utd for Daniel will be a fantastic move for both sides.
Daniel James’ achievement at Man Utd
Daniel joined Utd for £ 15m in the summer of 2019, the deal coming just months after the Leeds move fell through. Eyebrows were raised when the Red Devils bought into his potential, but an immediate impact was made when he opened his goal-scoring opening against Chelsea.
Daniel James faced stiff competition for seats and was unable to nail the regular seat to the right of the Utd’s attacking unit. He managed nine goals in his 74 outings, but was always on borrowed time at Old Trafford after Greenwood’s appearance and the Sancho acquisition. The Welshman could now make his bow for Leeds as they return to domestic action after an international break with a Premier League home game against Liverpool.
