Manchester United are weighing up releasing Daniel James for loan next season.
The Sun says United could offer James a bumper new deal — then loan him out next season.
The Welsh winger, 22, has made 37 appearances this term and will be rewarded with a pay hike.
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 a year ago from Championship outfit Swansea for £15million.
