Inter Looks At Daley Blind, Mourinho Could Let Him Go

A name from the past has surfaced once again: Dutch defender Daley Blind has a contract with Manchester United that will expire June 30th 2019. Because of that Manchester United could let Blind go one year from that in order to avoid the Dutchman leaving next year for free.

The ex-Ajax player has been having a hard time finding playing time under the supervision of Manchester United coach José Mourinho. Blind is a left full-back but can also play in central defence (his current position when playing for the Netherlands, alongside De Vrij) or as a midfielder.

La Gazzetta dello Sport explains: “Inter, who have only had tentative talks with his agent, sees in Blind a very useful player for its cause.

“He has a lot of international experience (52 appearances with 2 goals) and with his club. But comes from a season with only 17 appearances with Manchester United, partly due to a managerial choice and partly due to an ankle injury that kept him out of the game for almost four months.

“On March 9th, he turned 28 which means that he is a player in his prime and he could be used as a player that strengthens the roster and builds the team for the future.

“Inter’s strategy for now is just to move slowly, check the intentions of the player and trying to understand how much Blind wants to leave.

“On the left Asamoah has arrived, but Nagatomo and Dalbert will leave for sure. On the right Davide Santon will work as a vice-D’Ambrosio, should Daley Blind arrive this would mean a lot for Spalletti and his roster.”
