According to reports in Dutch media outlet De Telegraaf, Ajax are keen to follow up the signing of Dusan Tadic from Southampton by bringing Manchester United defender Daley Blind back to the Dutch capital, and many Red Devils fans have been quick to react to the rumour.
The versatile Netherlands international, who can play at full-back, centre-back or in central midfield, found first-team opportunities hard to come by under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford last term, and it would certainly be no surprise if he was offloaded this summer.
De Telegraaf report that Ajax are keen to re-sign the 28-year-old, and say that he wants to return to the Eredivisie after four years in the Premier League.
Many Man United supporters, who want their club to sign an £11.7m 2018 World Cup quarter-finalist following his latest display on Saturday, took to social media to give their thoughts on the reported interest, and while one said he is “better than Smalling at CB”, another said “have him for free”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Have him for free. We don’t want him anymore

Actually a good player and would probably be more appreciated and probably developed into a very good player if he wasn’t managed by who he was. Had the profile to become an excellent DM but not playing there for years kind of took it away. Better than Smalling at CB aswell https://t.co/esqkuXkyRM
