Daniel James’ £15million Manchester United move has been hit by a family tragedy.
Swansea winger’s father has passed away suddenly at the age of 60.
United will give James and his family enough time and space to deal with the bereavement before completing the transfer.
The 21-year-old’s move from the Liberty Stadium was expected to be completed this week but he and the family will be given as much time as they need.
James’ father had been ill but no one in the family had expected him to pass away so suddenly.
Sportsmail revealed earlier this month that United had emerged as frontrunners to sign the Wales international.
An agreement is now in place between the two clubs as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begins rebuilding his United squad for the long term.
James has caught United’s eye after enjoying a breakthrough season at Swansea, making 38 appearances, scoring five times and setting up 10 goals.
James is capable of playing on either flank and through the middle but United have earmarked him for a right-wing role and made specific checks on his suitability for the position during their enquiries.
