Daley Blind is leaving Ajax soon, says member of club’s coaching staff [Heldenonline]

It appears to have been confirmed that Daley Blind is leaving Ajax soon after a member of the club’s coaching staff said as much to Dutch site Heldenonline.

Here’s what Ajax youth coach Richard Witschge said about the World Cup star: “I think Daley Blind will be leaving soon. I have a feeling. He has been training by himself. I think he has done that, because there’s something going on.”

Blind was one of the breakthrough stars at the World Cup, excelling for Holland under Louis van Gaal, proving extremely effective in a left wing-back role.

Naturally, with van Gaal at the helm, Man United are among the favourites to sign the full-back who can also play in a defensive midfield role. But Barcelona are also said to be in the hunt for his signature, which will require an eight figure fee to get.
