Brighton boss Graham Potter is keen to reunite with Daniel James this summer and will test Manchester United’s resolve to keep the Welsh winger.

Potter managed James during his time at Swansea and he feels the rapid wide man could help his goal-shy side next term.

James impressed during his debut campaign at United following a £15m move from Swansea in 2019 but he struggled last term, making just 15 appearances in the Premier League.

The Welshman turns 24 in November and though he feels he can contribute at Old Trafford, he now faces even greater competition from Jadon Sancho following the winger’s £73m arrival from Dortmund.

That’s alerted Brighton and the Sun claim the Seagulls are ready to press ahead with a move for James, with Potter hoping the lure of regular first team football will be enough to persuade the playmaker to move to the south coast.

United could feasibly raise in excess of around £20m for James, which would cover more than a quarter of the money they’ve splashed out on Sancho.

The Red Devils are keen on signing Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, with the club hopeful that a fee of around £45m could be agreed.

Should the Frenchman arrive, Solskjaer will then turn his attention to signing Atletico Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier.

United are interested in West Ham’s Declan Rice but the Hammers want £100m for the England midfielder.
