Ajax’s Daley Blind has now landed in Manchester ahead of his medical to complete a move to Manchester United.
A deal to bring Blind to United was confirmed earlier by United and a fee in the region of £14m has been agreed with the Dutch club.
Blind will become the first Dutch signing of Louis van Gaal‘s reign and the fifth of United’s most expensive summer ever.
The 24-year-old has already been discussing his move to United and is expected to play a central midfield role after being told by Van Gaal that is where his position will be in the squad.
United’s spending after Blind now sits just below £150m in total but with just over 48 hours left in the summer transfer window, there is every chance that Blind might not be the last player to join United before it closes.
