Solskjaer and Man Utd hierarchy disagree over Dan James sale to fund Sancho deal

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly disagreeing with Old Trafford chiefs over the future of Daniel James.

James signed for United from Swansea last summer though struggled in the latter stages of his maiden campaign for the Red Devils.

He has been linked with a move away in the final days of the transfer window with United keen to trim their squad and raise some funds in the process.

ESPN claim that Solskjaer is happy to see Welsh winger James depart before Monday’s 11pm transfer deadline.

Though the report adds that the boss is yet to convince the club's hierarchy of the merits of a potential £25m sale, putting any move in doubt.

Solskjaer is believed to be prepared to sell James as he looks to fund a late move for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer.

Solskjaer hinted that he wants more transfer business to be done over the weekend having welcomed just one new signing this summer with Donny van de Beek arriving from Ajax.

"When we're planning, you've got players here we believe in," Solskjaer said.

“I didn't mean that in that respect, I meant there might be clubs and players out there that have to move because of the situation and it might be a something interesting for us.
