Manchester United are far behind the Reds at the moment, that much is well known.
But their latest signing – Daniel James, from Swansea City – has proven that, as many Reds fans have pointed out.
With Harry Wilson looking likely to move on from the club this summer because he won’t be able to force regular game time, Reds fans have been quick to note that Wilson had a better season than James, someone United have just spent £15 million on.
The signing of Daniel James shows the current difference between United and Liverpool.
Daniel James had 5 goals and 10 assists last season, and United fans are happy about him.
Harry Wilson had 18 goals and 6 assists last season, and he’s deemed not good enough for Liverpool.

United have signed this Daniel James and we’re looking to offload Harry Wilson .. we’re worlds apart from them at the minute and that makes me happy

So united have signed James for 15 million. 5 goals and 6 assists in the championship. He is the answer they need apparently.
Harry Wilson scores 15 and assisted 3 in the same league. Half our fan base doesn’t think he is good enough.

Manchester United fans were not able to disagree, either.
Harry Wilson was twice the player Daniel James was in the championship but there's not one liverpool fan thinking he's good enough for their team but loads of our fans delighted with James
Ffs how we have fallen

James is no doubt a great talent who could thrive at Old Trafford, but it does go to show where the two sides are at right now.
Jurgen Klopp would be more than happy to go into next season with the exact same squad (although we’re expecting a couple of signings), while sides like United, Arsenal and Chelsea are having to play catch-up.
Even Manchester City are going to need a bigger overhaul than the Reds this summer, with the likes of Vincent Kompany moving on and Fernandinho now 34.
The European champions are in a great place – bring on next season.
