Man Utd's Potential New Signing Daniel James Is One Of The Quickest Players In World Football

Daniel James introduced himself to the world earlier this year when he displayed a quite remarkable burst of pace during Swansea's FA Cup win against Brentford.

The 21-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United this week, grabbed the headlines in the 53rd minute when he skipped past three players like they weren't even there.

This has to be one of the best counter-attacking goals you'll see this season.

Just check out the sheer pace of the lad. Incredible speed.

BT Sport went on to compare the youngster to Kylian Mbappe, of all people, and we can't disagree with that statement.

Graham Potter's Swansea side brushed past Brentford thanks to goals from Daniel James, Bersant Celina and an unfortunate own goal from Luke Daniels.

But the performance of this speedy winger has caused quite the reaction on social media.

It was reported on Friday that Manchester United are on the verge of making their first signing of the summer.

They are close to agreeing a deal for Swansea City winger Daniel James, according to Sky Sports, the Premier League side are set to splash £15 million on the youngster.

Who is the quickest player you've ever seen on a football pitch? Is he faster than Mbappe?
