Leeds United famously missed out on Daniel James in January 2019 – but some Manchester United fans actually think a move to Elland Road could still happen.

The Whites had set up a deal to sign James from Swansea City 18 months ago, but the move collapsed at the last minute in a well-publicised saga.

Just months later, the Welsh speedster joined Manchester United for £15million in a huge move for the wide man having impressed in the Championship.

James has shown some quality in the Premier League, chipping in with four goals and seven assists in his first season at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old has now lost his spot to Mason Greenwood following his superb form, and rumours about Jadon Sancho aren’t exactly going away.

James struggled against Chelsea on Sunday, and United fans have been so unimpressed with him of late that they want to see him leave for Leeds.

Red Devils supporters have taken to Twitter to back James to finally make his move to Elland Road, having seen Leeds win promotion to the Premier League.

Some have ‘seen enough’ of James, and believe he should be sent to Leeds either on loan to develop his game or permanently.

Some think that he can be a star at Leeds compared to a squad player at United, and can see him heading to West Yorkshire after all.
