Edwin van der Sar hails Daley Blind as Ajax move draws closer

The 28-year-old Holland global swapped the Amsterdam giants for Old Trafford four years ago in a £14million deal.

De Telegraaf is reporting that Ajax will pay an initial €16 million to bring Blind back to the club but that fee could rise to €21 million.

The Dutch worldwide has fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, and a report in the De Telegraaf has alleged that a deal has been agreed to take Blind back to former club Ajax.

Blind joined Manchester United in 2014 under fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal.

He helped the Red Devils to lift the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League during his time at Old Trafford.

However, the other notable player to not be flying to the States does have a move away from Manchester United on the cards.

However, Blind struggled for form and fitness last season and barely featured during Mourinho's second season at the club.

Van der Sar, who won four league titles during his spell with United, is hoping to reunite Blind with the club that gave him his professional debut in 2008.

"I think Daley is a fantastic player", the Ajax chief told Omnisport.

Blind made 141 appearances for United across all competitions, seeing time at center-back, left-back and midfield.

Blind wasn't the only missing first-team member from United's squad as Alexis Sanchez was also left out.
