Manchester United seal deal for Netherlands international

Blind.jpgManchester United fans seem to be having a frantic day and BBC Sport are just making it all the more exciting after claiming a deal for Daley Blind is done and dusted.

The Netherlands international defender has now left Ajax and joined Manchester United for £13.8 million and will add some much needed solidity to the back line and midfield.

As one of our punters notes over a pint, we think that Louis van Gaal could well do with bringing in at least another couple of players.

Whilst no one would deny that Radamel Falcao is a bad signing, defenders are what United need and the versatility that Blind provides is not something to be sniffed at.

Blind can also play in the midfield as we saw during the World Cup and there is no doubt that he will come in handy!

The 24-year-old has plenty of experience working with compatriot van Gaal and also knows what it takes to be a winner after his time at Ajax.

He is giving up the chance of playing Champions League football for now but with the way deadline day is going for United at the minute, we certainly think they will be contenders to get back into that prestigious competition.

Manchester United fans. Do you think that Blind is the answer to your prayers at the back? Let us know your thoughts below.
