Daley Blind Closing In On €21m Manchester United Departure

Manchester United's Daley Blind could be about to return to one of his former clubs, Ajax.

The 28-year-old had been linked to a return back to Ajax amid reports from the media that United are set to sell him for £14m, as cited by Bleacher Report; speculation which can only be fuelled further by his absence from the tour. However, while he was a favourite of the compatriot, he has struggled for game time since Van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho in the summer of 2016.

The deal has been expected for some time, and the Netherlands global was not part of the United squad that flew to Los Angeles for their preseason tour on Sunday night.

In all, he made just four Premier Leauge starts last season (though, somewhat oddly, he remained a regular in the Champions League squads) and always looked likely to be sacrificed this summer as Mourinho looks to continue his squad rebuild.

He helped the Red Devils to lift the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League during his time at Old Trafford. The Dutchman has served as a competent utility player for United over four years, performing well in defensive midfield as well as central defence and left-back.
