Man United agree deal for versatile midfielder, announcement within 48-hours

DALEY BLIND is nearing a move with Eredivisie side Ajax, with the move expected to be completed within the next 48-hours, per reports.

The 28-year-old star was a key figure for Man United in his debut season under Luis Van Gaal, as he was deployed in the midfielder and some times defense. He won the FA Cup with the side the following season but he has seen his stock at its lowest as he has failed to impress Jose Mourinho.’

Mourinho has at his disposal, a plethora of defenders and midfielder, leaving Blind as a bit-part player. United have number of player that are on their exit list and the Dutch defender is one of them.

Ajax confirmed last week that they were working on a deal for the player and now it is only a matter of time before the deal is completed, reports daily De Telegraaf.

Blind is still tied to a contract with United until 2019 and he could be sold for 18,00 Mill. €, about same amount he was signed for in the summer of 2014.

United have already signed Fred from Shahktar Donetsk and Diogo Dalot from Porto FC, but they are still in the market for defensive reinforcement, which will likely throw out Blind from the first team.
