Daniel James is the first rookie of Man Utd this Summer. However, before taking part in the football world, James used to be a cricket player.
Recently, Man Utd completed their recruitment with the midfielder Daniel James from Swansea City which worths up to £ 18 million.
However, few people know, as a teenager, the midfielder once pursued the career of a cricket player. He played it during the age from 12 to 16. Only when James moved to Swansea did his cricket career come to a halt.
Matt Simpson, James’ teacher when he was 13, described him as a hard-working bee. His speed and skills has always been superior to his peers.
Kevan’s father just passed away last month at the age of 60 therefore his transfer to Old Trafford has been delayed. This has been bad news for the family of James, because his sister Hannah just got married this summer
Coming to Swansea was a major turning point in James’s career.
Last season, James scored 5 goals and contributed 10 assists for Swansea City in 38 matches.
At the age of 21, James has gained the opportunity to play for the first football team of Wales in the last EURO qualifier. Wearing Wales football uniform to a Yorkshire player like James is such a great pride. Playing for Man Utd, James receives an impressive salary of up to £ 67,000 / week. Currently, it is unlikely that James will continue his career at Old Trafford. As Solsa asserts: “This is the perfect environment for Daniel James to continue developing himself” and he needs to prove himself in the future.
