Manchester United & Barcelona considering €20m bids for Ajax’s Daley Blind [Mundo Deportivo]
After his brilliant World Cup at wing-back/defensive midfield for Holland, Daley Blind is hot property.
The Ajax youth product and son of 1995 Champions League winner Danny Blind is on the radar of Barcelona and Manchester United, according to El Mundo Deportivo.
With Barcelona’s first choice wing back Mathieu having problems getting out of his contract at Valencia, Barcelona have identified Blind as their Plan B, who they reason would also be better value for money.
Mundo Deportivo claim Ajax would want around 22 million Euros for Blind, just 2 more than Valencia want for Mathieu, with Blind 7 years younger than Mathieu.
Manchester United are also believed to be weighing up a bid; with Van Gaal having managed him for the Netherlands and worked with Blind Senior on the coaching staff, there’s a strong connection.
