Daley Blind Rejoins Ajax

Recommended Posts

Manchester United are willing to listen to offers for defenders Daley Blind this summer, according to Sky sources.

United exercised an option to extend Blind's contract by a further year in February in order to prevent the Netherlands international leaving on a free transfer in the summer.

This player is a left over from the previous manager. Blind is a family friend of van Gaal with plenty of eyes raised in Holland when Louis made Daley one of his first signings.

Cant say I have ever been impressed with him during his time at the club, which can be said about almost all other defenders at United during LVG & present managers time.

I think in a club that plays a more progressive style and was willing to play him as a holding mid he'd look quality. He's a class player imo but at United he's been limited by the constant need to do a job in different positions. 

Even then, the fact that he can go to CB or LB and still look alright shows that he's got a great awareness.

Jose Mourinho has said he wants Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian to stay at Manchester United, but admits the club will consider offers if the players are not happy.

We've been linked with him in pretty much every transfer window the last 2 years, mainly due to the Koeman Dutch connection. Just seems a bit of a meh player.

It sounds like he may be moving to Ajax. On the outset, given his versatility and promise this should have been a signing that seen him come a fan favourite and spend most of his career at United. Similar to many unfashionable names under Fergie. I guess it just wasn't to be.

Mourinho didn't really get on with him, as it is isnt his player.  Blind is always handy to have though as he can play centre back, left and also in midfield.

Fourteen Million seems like a lot for a defensive versatile player that's largely underperformed.

I thought this. For what he's done, it should be half that with add ons. It's a  lot of money for Ajax.

Ajax have lots of money, probably richer then some Premier League clubs at the moment, with the amount they have in their accounts.

All been confirmed on Sky.

I'm sure he will have a long and successful career at Ajax. It's just a shame that given his initial promise he will amount to nothing more across Europe.

He gets injured a lot but Eric B. is one of the top defenders of the league. Nice try though

A bit off topic, but anyway. Are Ajax keeping Neres for next season, Panna?

Yes Neres will stay for at least another year,  Ajax cannot afford to lose anymore players, they already lost Kluivert and Ziyech is probably leaving as well and now Blind has come in which will mean Frenkie de Jong will go to Barcelona.

He was average before at Ajax, its only because he had a good World Cup in 2014 and it was a player Van Gaal liked and trusted due to Blind able to play in a number of positions, he was never going to be a top player.
