Giggs thinks United target James can play at any level

Former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs has said that he believes that Swansea City winger Daniel James can play at any level.

James has been linked with a move to United this summer as the club look to move on from a disastrous end to their season and Giggs has said that he's sure he'll make the right decision regarding his club future.

“Ideally, as an international manager, you don’t want to influence players’ decisions when it comes to clubs,” Giggs said via the Manchester Evening News. “For me it’s about players playing.

"He was fantastic in the last six months for Swansea, putting in devastating performances and I think he can play at any level. He could play in the Premier League, but if he stays at Swansea for another year or two years I’d be equally as happy because he’s done so well there.

“That’s a decision for Dan to make and I’m sure he’ll make the right decision.”

Meanwhile Swansea chairman Trevor Birch seems resigned to losing the young Welsh international this summer and indicates that the club would be open to dealing players for the right price.

"I can't see there being many. If the Dan James thing happens then there might possibly be one or two, I don't know. But I can't see a fire sale of players," he told WalesOnline .

"If someone comes in with an offer that is sensible and proper player trading then you would have to think about that.

"But you can’t give players away. You’ve got to get the right value for them. We aren’t in a position, and I am pretty well versed in financial positions and football clubs, where we have to sell a player or it is ‘Good Night Vienna’. We can hold out for the right prices."
