- Daniel James is set to complete his move to Man United after international duty
- James is expected to start against Hungary in Wales' Euro 2020 qualified campaign
- Hungary coach Marco Rossi seems well aware of James' impressive skills after comparing the winger to Brazil legend Ronaldo
Daniel James has earned comparison to Brazil icon Ronaldo ahead of his £18m summer switch to Manchester United.
Hungary coach, Marco Rossi, believes James' blistering pace upfront can only compare to Ronaldo and Olympic sprinter, Usain Bolt.
The star winger shot to fame this season after making more than 30 appearances for Swansea, scoring four times and setting up seven others.
His FA Cup goal against Brentford back in February evidenced his spectacular pace as he left all the defenders in his tracks before slotting home a coolly.
The 21-year-old's strong form saw him break into Wales' senior squad and is now in line to start against Hungary in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
"James' speed reminds of Usain Bolt - to be so fast like him is really incredible," Rossi said at his pre-match press conference.
"In the last years I don't remember one player that gave me this sensation. His acceleration is so peculiar, which is why Manchester United have bought him. In the past, I played against a very fast player who, for me, was the best after [Diego] Maradona - Ronaldo," he added.
According to a UK Mirror report, James is expected to complete his move to Old Trafford after the international duty.
