Man United NOT in for World Cup star

Daley Blind is not in line to become a Manchester United player this week, according to his agent.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the son of Holland hero, Danny, for much of the summer, after the versatile ace impressed for Louis van Gaal’s Oranje side at the World Cup.

Despite two left-sided players in the shape of Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw having been snapped up for big fees, an £18m offer for the Ajax man has been mooted, with the Amsterdam club said to be ready to sell for such a price.

Rumours also suggest that United scouts watched Blind over the weekend, but his agent, Rob Jansen, says that there has been no contact with the club as of yet:

“At this moment Manchester United have not been in touch with me or Ajax about Daley,” he told talkSPORT.

“I’m not sitting here waiting for the call.”

Blind is primarily a left-back, but his versatile nature saw Ajax utilise him in a holding midfield role for much of last season.

There has also been talk of the 24-year-old dropping into a central role in the backline thanks to his reading of the game.
