Daley Blind is believed to be really worried about his future at Old Trafford.

According to the latest report from The Mirror, United boss Jose Mourinho is all set for a defensive overhaul as he looks forward to the next two transfer windows.

The Portuguese tactician has already identified Bayern Munich’s David Alaba, Aleksandar Dragovic of Bayer Leverkusen, and Southampton’s Jose Fonte as his potential targets.

And now, Daley Blind is believed to be worried that he could be in Manchester United’s current to-be-sold list to make way for a new signings. The Dutchman has reportedly informed his close ones that he could be on his way out of the Old Trafford club in the near future.

And if the report from Mirror is to be believed, long-term futures of Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, and Luke Shaw are also in serious doubt.

The contradictory fact is that the 26-year-old Netherlands international has been a regular choice for Mourinho this term, playing 10 of the Red Devils’ 13 league fixtures. But since the Special One is seriously considering some drastic changes to his faltering squad, Blind could ultimately face the exit.

Interestingly, among the potential transfer targets of Mourinho, Dragovic was also scouted by Van Gaal during his time in charge of the Red Devils, and the Austrian defender was believed to be keen on joining United.

Mourinho has reportedly watched Dragovic twice during the recent international break, while his compatriot Alaba also in the wishlist, with a plan to bid for the £20m-rated defender.

However, David Alaba, who is also in Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola’ transfer bucket, will be an extremely hard one to prise away from Bayern Munich. The German giants will kick away any kind of attempts to tempt their £40m-rated defender away from Munich, but that doesn’t mean it will stop a bidding war for the talented Austrian next summer.
