Leeds United could yet make another move for Daniel James, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer willing to sell him, ESPN say.
Leeds have been heavily linked with James throughout the summer so far, but have not been able to secure a deal.
However, with the Red Devils struggling to raise funds to finance a bid for Jadon Sancho, it seems that James could come up for sale.
United’s board do not want him to leave, but Solskjaer is trying to persuade them to sell for £25 million, as he feels that money could be put towards bringing Sancho in.
ESPN now say that Leeds have hope in the chase again, and they could mount an offer before the deadline.
Leeds are still on the hunt for a new winger, and they have been long standing admirers of James.
The Whites almost wrapped up a deal for the rapid forward six months before he made the move to Old Trafford.
If James was to join Leeds he would arrive with a point to prove.
After a blistering start in Manchester, his form has now stalled, and there are question marks over whether he has the ability to perform at the top level.
