Daniel James strikes an action pose in his first official Manchester United photoshoot

When can United fans first see James in action?

Excitement is growing at Manchester United with the announcement that Daniel James has joined the club from Swansea City.

The Welsh winger has impressed for both club and country in the last year and has left many United fans eager to see our new recruit’s skills in action.

Fortunately, there will be plenty of opportunities to get to know James ahead of the new Premier League season, for which the fixtures will be announced on Thursday.
For example, the 21-year-old could be involved in the United squad which will head to Australia in July, to play our first warm-up games ahead of the upcoming 2019/20 campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men begin the pre-season schedule with a friendly against Perth Glory at the Optus Stadium in Perth on 13 July, which may give supporters the first opportunity to see James play for the Reds.
The same arena in Perth will provide another opportunity four days later, when Leeds United are the opposition for our second Tour 2019 match.

Tickets for both games are still available at www.manutd.com/tour.

After two fixtures in Australia, the Reds will then begin the International Champions Cup campaign, in which we will take on Inter Milan (20 July), Tottenham Hotspur (25 July) and AC Milan (3 August).
Sandwiched between the last two ICC games is a friendly match against Norwegian outfit, Kristiansund, in Oslo on 30 July.

All of these matches will help Solskjaer and his squad to prepare for our first Premier League game of the season on the weekend of 10-11 August.
