Reports on the Daily Mail website have linked Manchester United target Daley Blind with a move to Old Trafford.
Daley is the son of Ajax-legend Danny Blind, who won the Champions League with the Amsterdam outfit in 1995. Joining the Ajax-academy at the age of four, it always seemed like young Daley was destined to play for the first team.
But it hasn’t always been easy for him, there were times when his surname was a bit of a curse to him, raising expectations to unmanageable proportions.
Recently, however, Blind Jr has turned things around, delivering a series of unquestionable performances.
While usually deployed as a left-back, Blind has proven to be an excellent defensive midfielder as well, reminiscent of former Ajax player Vurnon Anita, who also impressed playing in this role in Ajax’s famous attacking 4-3-3 formation.
