Manchester United have agreed terms with Dutch side Ajax over the sale of defender Daley Blind.
Blind hardly featured for the Red Devils during the 2017/18 season, scoring once in just 17 appearances in all competitions, and United have now confirmed he is likely to leave after they agreed terms with Ajax.
A statement on their website reads: “
“A further announcement will be made in due course.”
Blind joined United in 2014 after a stellar World Cup with the Netherlands and has made 141 appearances for the club in total, scoring six goals and winning the FA Cup, League Cup, the Europa League and the Community Shield.
The 28-year-old has become Ajax’s record signing for a fee that could reach £18m, according to the Mirror, who also claim Blind has agreed a four-year deal with the Dutch side.
Blind was absent from United’s travelling squad for their pre-season tour of the USA on Sunday in order to complete his deal, and he trained with his new team on Monday as they prepare for a friendly against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday.
He was purchased from Ajax, for whom he made 143 appearances during his first stint with the Dutch giants, after becoming one of Europe’s most sought-after young footballers.
Blind was a regular for United under former manager Louis van Gaal when he originally signed for the Premier League giants but has struggled for matches under Jose Mourinho, making just four league starts during the 2017/18 season whilst also being left out of the FA Cup final squad.
