Manchester United near deal to sell Daley Blind back to Ajax

Ajax are believed to have agreed a £14m deal with United to re-sign the 28-year-old this summer.

The Dutch global has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, and a report in the De Telegraaf has alleged that a deal has been agreed to take Blind back to former club Ajax. "For Netherlands and for Manchester United, he played many good games.it would be a great addition for Ajax to have a player with the quality of Daley to fit in the team".

He was missing when Jose Mourinho and the rest of the United squad flew out from Manchester Airport to Los Angeles to begin their pre-season tour of the United States on Sunday.

It represents a profit for United on a player who joined from Ajax for £13.8m in 2014.

Blind has been used at centre-back, left-back and central midfield during his time at the Red Devils and has won the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League in four years at the club.

That was reduced to just seven appearances for United in the Premier League last season as a result of injuries and being out of favour, with four of those appearances coming from the start.

Blind, a Dutch global, previously spent four years with the Ajax senior club before moving over to United four summers ago.

"I'm really excited for this new challenge and my target is to meet the demands of the Premier League", the 26-year-old said on West Ham's official website.
