Manchester United are reportedly willing to let Dan James leave on loan, if they secure the transfer of Jadon Sancho.

James is wanted by Leeds United, who have been in regular contact with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side about a potential loan deal.

The 22-year-old started United’s 3-1 Premier League defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace but was left out of the squad for the 3-2 win over Brighton and he would be expected to earn more first-team opportunities at Elland Road.

As it stands, James is United’s first-choice backup to Mason Greenwood.

And unless United find a replacement, he will be forced to stay, according to The Sun.

United are believed to be preparing a £90million bid for Sancho as they make a late push to sign the Borussia Dortmund winger.

Under the terms of the proposed deal, £65m would be paid up front.

However, Dortmund are adamant they won’t sell the England international for less than their £108m valuation.

Should Ed Woodward and co. fail to strike a deal then Leeds will be forced to turn their attentions elsewhere.

Leeds have made a strong start to life back in the Premier League, winning two of their opening three matches and only suffering defeat to champions Liverpool.

Manchester United may also look elsewhere and have been linked to Watford’s Ismaila Sarr as an alternative.
