Manchester United’s Daley Blind is considering leaving Old Trafford this summer.
That’s according to the usually ESPN, who cite Dutch media outlet De Telegraaf, suggesting that Blind will sit down and think about his long-term future over the summer.
The 28-year-old became a first-team regular under Louis van Gaal, but when Jose Mourinho took charge, he immediately saw a massive reduction in minutes.
In 2018, Blind has made just two starts for the Red Devils, and he’s at that stage in his career where he likely only has one big contract left in his career. You can hardly blame him if he decides to move on and find regular first-team football elsewhere.
As a versatile footballer who can slot in seamlessly in numerous positions, it’s great having Blind around and I’m sure Jose Mourinho won’t be pushing him towards the exit door. He can play at centre-back, left-back and even in midfield; all to a high level.
However, there is only so much bench-sitting any player can take, and he must know that he’ll never be a regular starter under the Portuguese manager at Old Trafford. If the right offer comes along, then I personally wouldn’t be surprised to see him pack his bags and move on.
