This is because Metro claim that Daley Blind is so confident he’ll complete a £15 million summer switch from Ajax that he is looking for a new house in the English city.
The defender is well known by new United boss Louis van Gaal and it seems that the feeling of respect goes both ways with Blind ready to leave Amsterdam and Ajax behind in order to make the move to Old Trafford.
As one of our punters claims over a pint, we think that United have a massive shot at not only a top four place but also the Premier League title this season.
Whilst they may not be able to offer Blind Champions League football this term, it is likely to be on offer next year.
Our landlord brings over another round of pints and adds that the versatility possessed by Blind, not to mention his familiarity with van Gaal’s preferred 3-5-2 system certainly means he will fit in well at Manchester United.
United fans. Is Blind one of the players you would like to add to your squad this summer or is he someone that is simply a squad player and not worth spending money upon? Let us know your thoughts below.
