Despite Jose Mourinho stating that there would not be any more movement in the transfer market from Manchester United, an Italian journalists tweet has suggested otherwise.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Daley Blind could be on his way to Roma, after the Italian club sold their starting left back, Emerson Palmieri, to Chelsea.

Blind, who is valued at £18million on Transfermarkt, hasn’t enjoyed the most fruitful season at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman has featured in just five league games for United. And while he has been an ever present in the Champions League, Blind will be searching for more regular football, something that Roma are ready to offer him.

Upon hearing the news, United fans took to Twitter and were surprisingly happy to hear that the versatile defender could leave the club in the next 24 hours…
