Leeds United eyeing James McAtee summer swoop

Leeds United are reportedly keen on signing 21-year-old English winger James McAtee from Manchester City this summer.

According to Give Me Sport, Leeds United are hoping to sign James McAtee on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window. The winger was on loan at Sheffield United this season, and he has impressed with the Blades in his last two seasons. Manchester City will make the 21-year-old available for £20 million.

McAtee has scored 14 goals over the last couple of seasons with the Blades, and a move to Leeds United could be an attractive opportunity for him, especially if the Whites return to the Premier League this weekend. Meanwhile, his £10,000-a-week wages make him an appealing target.

It will be interesting to see if Leeds United can secure promotion to the Premier League on Sunday. The Whites will take on Southampton in the play-off final, and they will be hoping to secure their place in the Premier League next year.

Leeds United need more quality and depth in the attacking areas, and the 21-year-old could prove to be a quality acquisition, especially amid the constant transfer links surrounding Crysencio Summerville.

James McAtee might get more exposure at Leeds United

The youngster is unlikely to get ample opportunities at Manchester City, and he needs to leave the club to play more often. McAtee is highly rated across England, and he has a big future ahead of him. He could develop into a key player for Leeds with the right guidance. Regular football in the English top flight with Leeds will help him develop further and fulfil his potential.

The 21-year-old has had ample game time with Sheffield United this past season, and he is well-versed with the Premier League now. He will look to continue his impressive run of form at Leeds if they are promoted to the Premier League next season. It will be interesting to see if Leeds can secure an agreement with Manchester City now.

James McAtee currently earns £10,000 per week, and he could be handed a more lucrative contract if he decides to move to Elland Road in the summer transfer window. He will be a future prospect for them, and Leeds will be hoping to help him develop and fulfil his tremendous potential.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester City are willing to sanction is departure. They have let talented young players like Jadon Sancho and Cole Palmer leave the club over the years. The 21-year-old could be another future star, and it remains to be seen what they decide. Manchester City will have to incorporate the player in their first team if they want to keep him at the club.
