Inter Milan Eyeing United’s Daley Blind
Reports from Italy claim that Inter Milan’s new boss, Frank De Boer, is keen on a reunion with Daley Blind.
Daley Blind joined Manchester United in 2014, with Louis Van Gaal paying £13.8 million for the dynamic midfielder.
Blind is believed to be one of many Manchester United players who will face the axe this season under Jose Mourinho. However, the Dutchman started Mourinho’s first competitive match in charge of the Red Devils.
Frank De Boer was just recently announced as the manager of Internazionale, after the departure of Roberto Mancini, and is looking towards bringing Blind to Italy, reports the Milan-based Mediaset.
The new Inter manager will be looking to make various changes and implement his new work ethics. He is even believed to have told Mauro Icardi that he can stay at the club, after the 23-year-old was reportedly set to leave.

Frank is also keen to lure Daley Blind into his newly inherited squad. Daley Blind and Frank De Boer were together while De Boer was the manager of Ajax.
Blind began his career in the Ajax Youth Academy, and was promoted to the first team squad in 2008. However, he was sent out on loan in 2009, and returned the next season. When De Boer took charge of the Ajax first team, he gave Blind more trust and time on the pitch.
De Boer played Blind as left-back during the beginning of his reign at Ajax, but later allowed him to revert back to his more natural and preferred position as a defensive midfielder. Blind was even named the Dutch footballer of the year, as he helped Ajax to their fourth consecutive league title.
Daley Blind has played 247 matches during the course of his career, and would be the perfect candidate for any club due to his versatility and adaptability.
As Manchester United are already looking at getting rid of the Dutchman, Inter could get the player on the cheap.
