The arrival of Daley Blind at Ajax could see De Jong leave

Daley Blind is moving closer to the exit, as he was not part of the Manchester United squad that flew to the United States for pre-season.

Ajax are believed to have agreed a £14m deal with United to re-sign the 28-year-old this summer.

The Netherlands worldwide joined the Red Devils from the Amsterdam outfit during Louis van Gaal's time in charge and he was a regular during the Dutchman's two seasons at Old Trafford.

The deal has been expected for some time, and the Netherlands worldwide was not part of the United squad that flew to Los Angeles for their preseason tour on Sunday night.

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.

Daley Blind to Ajax is indeed happening.

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

Blind leaves United with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League winners' medals in his collection, while Old Trafford chiefs will be pleased to be United a profit on the player they signed for a £13.8m four years ago. The Dutchman has served as a competent utility player for United over four years, performing well in defensive midfield as well as central defence and left-back.

I think Daley is a fantastic player.
