Manchester United star Daley Blind is reportedly close to completing a transfer to Ajax after being left out of the squad’s pre-season tour.
Jose Mourinho already took his players to the United States of America though the Dutchman was left behind- the greatest indication he will be sold.
United’s World Cup stars are currently on holiday so the majority of the pre-season squad were youngsters meaning there’s no real other reason for Blind to miss out.
However, it’s report the versatile player is taking advantage of Ajax having a training camp in England and a transfer being completed seems imminent.
It’s understood that a transfer fee has been agreed meaning only personal terms and a medical should be left to making the move permanent.

The Red Devils’ squad will certainly miss Daley who proved to be one of Louis van Gaal‘s more useful signings with his versatility being put to the test.
He experienced his greatest success at the club at centre-back of all positions, forming a fine partnership alongside a surprisingly solid Chris Smalling at the time.
Unfortunately under Mourinho’s tactics, Blind’s weaknesses were far more exposed such as his lack of pace or strength, particularly in the full-back areas.
