Manchester United are reportedly close to agreeing a fee with Swansea City for winger Daniel James following some late interest from Monaco.

A compromise is reportedly close to being reached between Manchester United and Swansea City for winger Daniel James.

The Red Devils are believed to have targeted the 21-year-old as part of their new policy to recruit young and affordable players with potential.

Talks between the two clubs stalled last month due to the tragic passing of the Wales international's father, but the Evening Standard suggests that discussions have now resumed.

United are said to be nearing a breakthrough for James after being alerted by interest from Monaco, which has only increased the youngster's valuation.

It is claimed that the Red Devils are close to reaching an agreement with Swansea that could see them pay nearly double their original £10m offer.

James, who played a direct part in 11 goals last season, is in contention to feature for Wales in their upcoming qualifiers against Croatia and Hungary.
