Done! Ajax confirm Daley Blind's transfer to Manchester United
It may not be a huge surprise, considering the move was confirmed a few days ago, but Ajax have confirmed the signing of Faley Blind to Manchester United.
The announcement from Manchester United must be pretty close…
Quite why Louis van Gaal waited so long to wrap up a move for Blind is not quite clear, but Manchester United have their hands on one of the finest young players in Europe.
Blind offers huge versatility as he can play at left back, in the centre of defence and in midfield – were he is tipped to perform at Old Trafford.
The fee is believed to be €17.5m for Blind, and the Holland international will receive his Dutch Footballer of the Year award tonight.
Its not quite Radamel Falcao but its nontheless a big signing for Manchester United and one they may profit from for some time…
