MANCHESTER UNITED could offer Dan James a bumper new deal — but then loan him out next season.
The Welsh winger, 22, has made 37 appearances this term and will be rewarded with a pay rise.
But the door may be left open for the ex-Swansea attacker to play away from Old Trafford if they make star summer signings.
United are pushing for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and he is earmarked for the right-wing slot, so James may not get many regular starts.
He only joined United one year ago from Championship outfit Swansea for £15million.
James scored four times in 37 games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
And he still has a chance to impress further when United resume their Premier League campaign against Spurs on June 19.
However, Solskjaer has his heart set on landing Dortmund and England flyer Sancho.
The ace, 20, has an incredible 17 goals and 16 assists in the Bundesliga this season.
Sancho could cost upwards of £100million this summer.
And United reportedly signalled their intent to focus on his signature by dropping their interest in Chelsea-bound Timo Werner.
SunSport exclusively revealed last month that United are also keen on a £50m deal for Bayern Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz.
And further reports suggest Solskjaer would like to sign Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish as well, thus limiting James’ chances even further.
