Manchester United’s Daley Blind a target for former club Ajax

by Tanveer Arayan


Ajax are considering a summer move for their former player Daley Blind, according to the Independent.

He arrived at Manchester United for £13.2m in the summer of 2014 after being named Dutch Footballer of the Year as Ajax won a fourth consecutive league title.

Since then, he became a regular in the side under Louis van Gaal, playing all but three Premier League matches last season, in a range of positions.

However, this season under Jose Mourinho, Blind has failed to cement his place in the first-team as he’s started less than half of United’s league games.

Blind allegedly only has one more season remaining on his contract and yet talks have not begun over extending his stay at Old Trafford, which is the main reason behind Ajax’s interest.

He’s a popular figure at the club after proving his incredible versatility and while many would have liked to see him in a midfield role, he’s been forced to continuously play in defence.

Blind could have been a brilliant replacement for Michael Carrick as he also understands the game, has the ability to open up play and could be brilliant alongside Paul Pogba, but we just haven’t been able to see it in action.
