Blind coy on Manchester United transfer speculation

The 24-year-old is one of Louis van Gaal’s top transfer targets but would not comment on his future when questioned following Ajax’s 3-1 Eredivisie win over AZ

Ajax left-back Daley Blind insists he has heard nothing of rumours liking him with a potential switch to Manchester United this summer.

Earlier this week Goal revealed that United are pressing ahead with plans to sign Blind and Fiorentina star Juan Cuadrado as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his injury-hit squad.

Louis van Gaal is keen to be reunited with the 24-year-old after he played a starring role in the Netherlands’ run to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Brazil.

Last week Blind told Goal he would find it hard to turn down United if they were to make an approach, but was silent on his future following Ajax’s 3-1 Eredivisie win at AZ on Sunday.

“I have nothing to report,” Blind told Voetbal Primeur. “I’m happy here.”

However, Blind refused to rule out the possibility of leaving the Dutch champions if the right club made an approach for his services.

“Certainly I don’t need to leave and I am happy with all the support,” he added.

“But if a nice club comes, then we’ll talk. And then we’ll see.”
