Ajax Agree Fee With Manchester United For Daley Blind

Daley Blind of Manchester United lifts The Europa League trophy after the UEFA Europa League Final between Ajax and Manchester United at Friends Arena

The Netherlands global was not on the flight from Manchester to Los Angeles on Sunday evening and is expected to seal his move in the coming days.

The deal will mean that Blind will become the most expensive player in Ajax's history.

Sources have told ESPN FC that executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been holding out for around £15 million.

Louis van Gaal signed Blind from Ajax in 2014 after working with the utility man when he managed the Netherlands and the versatile Dutchman proved popular at Old Trafford during his debut campaign.

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

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

The arrival of Daley at Ajax could change the Dutch club's stance.

Having appeared 60 times in the Premier League before Mourinho's appointment, Blind has played only 30 times since the former Chelsea boss arrived.

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

Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez was also left out for the trip, but Matteo Darmian has travelled to the USA despite interest in the Italian from both Juventus and Inter Milan.

Inter have made an enquiry about taking the full-back on loan for a year with a view to a permanent move next summer. However, he didn't fit into Jose Mourinho's plans.
