Agent reveals club secret over failed Daley Blind deal

  • Manchester United star in talks to leave club after Chelsea complete £25m transfer

Roma and Manchester United are said to be now working on reaching an agreement, but based on the accelerated pace of this deal, it is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that we see the 27-year old Ajax product finalise his move within the next day or two.

Despite starting the first three Premier League games of the season, helping to keep three clean sheets, Daley Blind has gone on to make just two more league appearances this season - both from the bench with games in the dying stages.

It's unlikely that Blind will become a regular starter soon - and although Jose Mourinho values the versatility of the Dutchman - Roma's continued interest (as per the same reports, the Italians were interested in him during the summer window as well) could sway the player's mind and in turn convince United to let go of him.

Roma are on the hunt for a left-sided player after selling Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea and the Netherlands international's father Danny says a switch to the Italian capital would be favourable, but played down the chances of a deal going through.


However, for Blind, whose contract runs out next summer, time appears to be up, although a transfer to Roma appears to be hard.

He played every minute of United's Champions League group campaign, however, Mourinho's men topping their pool to book a last-16 meeting with Sevilla.

It is said the Red Devils will then likely trigger the one-year extension in Blind's deal and look to sell him for an increased amount next summer instead.

He was an immediate hit for United, with his intelligent play seeing him establish himself in a defensive midfield role. Maybe if we had a few days, a week perhaps, but we've only got a few hours.
