United move close to Blind deal

first_img Press Association Louis van Gaal hopes to boost his Manchester United squad by completing the signing of Daley Blind before the transfer window shuts. United confirmed on Saturday morning they had agreed a fee with Ajax for the versatile 24-year-old. Blind is expected to fly to Manchester to agree personal terms and undergo a medical before Monday’s 11pm transfer deadline. center_img Van Gaal, who has already signed four players this summer, said after the 0-0 draw at Burnley: “He’ll come to Manchester to have a medical, and then we might have a new player.” The deal to bring Blind to Old Trafford is thought to be worth around £14million. Blind was part of Louis van Gaal’s World Cup squad earlier this summer and is the son of former Holland defender Danny Blind. The Ajax youth academy product can play in a variety of positions, including left-back and in central midfield. After watching his team go four games without a win, Van Gaal thinks his squad is in need of an overhaul. The 20-time English champions have been linked with a move for Arturo Vidal, but are understood to be cautious about bidding for the Juventus midfielder due to his knee injury. Another target is Roma’s Kevin Strootman, but he again is also just coming back from injury. Van Gaal is expected to sell a number of fringe players before Monday night. Tom Cleverley is in talks with Aston Villa, Shinji Kagawa has been linked with a return to Borussia Dortmund and Javier Hernandez is a reported target for Juventus. When asked about Kagawa after the draw at Burnley, Van Gaal said: “We’ll have to wait and see, because players are deciding (to leave) at the last minute, not the manager.” last_img read more
