Reports claim Manchester United are on the verge of completing a £15m deal for 21-year-old Swansea winger Daniel James.

A number of other Premier League sides are also interested in the Wales international, but Manchester United seem to have won the race for the young winger.

When asked in his press conference about the deal, Solskjaer refused to say whether he was going for the player, but admitted that Manchester United will not necessarily be going for ready-made players.

“I don’t know how many names have been mentioned, there are players I have barely seen who it says we are going to sign! The earlier you can do the transfers, the better it is,” Solskjaer said when asked about the potential signing of James.

“I can’t comment on every single individual. i don’t like when others talk about my players, I won’t talk about others.”

Solskjaer went on: “I think I have been quite honest that challenging for the title next year would be a miraculous season because we are so far behind points-wise.

“Next season we have to close that gap, if we manage to get to February or March and still be close then that’s fantastic.

“If not this summer will also be about players that can last here for many years. No it’s not just about ready-made players. We’ve never been a ready-made club.

“[Cristiano] Ronaldo was never ready-made, Wayne Rooney was never ready-made. Loads of the players that come here and really developed into the top superstars that they have become.

“That’s always going to be the model – that we will develop players because I’ve got the best staff, the best environment.

“And the best supporters because they love players that excite them, that get them off their seats and we hope to get some of them in.”
