James has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for weeks now, and a transfer to Leeds could be ideal.
Marcelo Bielsa tried to sign James before his move to Old Trafford, and it is evident that the Argentine manager rates him highly. James needs a coach who will trust in his ability.
He needs to play regularly at this stage of his career and will get more first-team opportunities at Elland Road.
James made just 11 league starts at Old Trafford this past season.
Leeds needed to add more depth and quality in wide areas, and James could prove a superb long term investment.
He will add explosive pace and flair to their attack. James must add more end product to his game, but he has the raw attributes to develop into a quality winger.
Bielsa will be keen to help the winger fulfil his potential at Leeds over the coming seasons.
