Man Utd legend Gary Neville believes the club should cash in on Daniel James this summer.

The former defender-turned-pundit revealed on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football that the Old Trafford club's transfer priority is long-term target Jadon Sancho.

Three players, including James, could leave the club this summer to free-up funds for a move for the England international, who currently plays for Borussia Dortmund.

Neville feels that the departure of James, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata would also free-up space in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad, and "good money" could be earned from selling the former Swansea City winger.

“If you look at the policy over the last couple of years since Ole has come in, I don’t think they will sign another striker," Neville said on Monday Night Football.

"I haven’t got the contacts on the inside that I used to have, so it’s my assumption because they’ve been desperate for Sancho.

"They didn’t get Sancho and they were criticised for that, I criticised them for that. But they could look incredibly smart this year if they get him for near half the price and they’ve waited 12 months.

"I think Juan Mata has done fantastically well for the club but I think he’ll leave.

"I think they can get good money for Daniel James, but again, he could go somewhere else and they can get good money for him.

"There’s a feeling that Jesse Lingard, he’s done really well at West Ham, but I think Ole will say no, he can explore and go elsewhere. Van de Beek has to stay, in my opinion.

"The rest of them: Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood, Pogba, Martial, Van de Beek and Cavani - if Manchester United were to sign Harry Kane and Sancho, for example, then will Cavani play? Will Greenwood? Where will that leave Rashford?

"Where does Pogba fit in, if Ole plays two defensive midfielders as he does, with Fernandes in front because he’s a guarantee.

"I think Sancho comes in and he plays on that right-hand side, you’ve potentially got the back-up of Greenwood on that side, you’ve got Cavani and Greenwood up front.

"On the left, you’ve got Rashford and Martial and then you’ve got Pogba who potentially fits in if he’s not in midfield.

"If you sign Kane or Haaland, I don’t think that basically works for United with the way they’ve recruited in the last few years. Allowing young players like Greenwood, making sure Rashford plays, Van de Beek getting a game.

"I think it’s Sancho and then that’s their business done.”

But what would "good money" look like for James in terms of a potential transfer fee?

James' true transfer value, according to the experts at CIES Football Observatory, is somewhere in the region of €50-70million (£43-60million).

They use a complex matrix to work out transfer values, taking into account a number of variables such as contract duration, performance, age, career progression, international status, inflation and club level and wealth.

James has four years still to run on his Old Trafford contract and will be hoping to have a positive European Championships with Wales this summer.
