Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Daniel James' arrival at Old Trafford reminds him of his own time at the club.
James joined United from Championship outfit Swansea City, in a deal reported to be in the region of £15 million. The Wales international has so far impressed, scoring on his debut against Chelsea and following that up with goals against Southampton and Crystal Palace. Solskjaer was also signed at United for a bargain fee of £1.5m back in 1996.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Solskjaer was asked if it is possible to sign someone like him in today's transfer market, "I think we've shown with Dan James. The price we had to pay for him wasn't massive, and he's shown there is talent out there, if you scout them well enough and recruit the right personalities, you don't have to pay over the odds.
"Of course. The money that's involved in football now is different, but I'm delighted with the three we've signed. I think they've shown that we're doing a good job."
