Transfer roundup: Daley Blind set to leave Manchester United for Ajax

Daley Blind of Manchester United lifts The Europa League trophy after the UEFA Europa League Final between Ajax and Manchester United at Friends Arena

Manchester United defender Daley Blind is closing in on a move to Ajax, sources have told ESPN FC.

Manchester United are reported to have agreed to a deal from Ajax to take Daley Blind back to the Eredivisie to the tune of €21 million, according to Goal.

The 28-year-old, who will apparently cost his former club only £18.5 million (R324 million), was one of the first names on the team sheet at United under Louis van Gaal's management, but played just 17 matches in the whole of the past campaign.

Blind will leave Old Trafford having helped lift the FA Cup, League Cup and the Europa League during his 141 game career with the Premier League outfit.

Van der Sar, who won four league titles during his spell with United, is hoping to reunite Blind with the club that gave him his professional debut in 2008.

While Barca would have to pay a bunch for De Jong, losing Blind to Ajax is not the best move for us.

Blind could be a quality squad player for us next season and he would do a decent job as a left-back. Under Mourinho, he has failed to establish either as a regular or even a position from the bench, with his appearance numbers dropping drastically in the two seasons under the Portuguese.

However, Blind struggled for form and fitness last season and barely featured during Mourinho's second season at the club.
