Louis Van Gaal’s phenomenal run with Holland in the 2014 FIFA World Cup resulted in Manchester United being interested in hiring the Dutchman. They appointed him as their manager and Louis Van Gaal brought along new signings with him. Of the many players who came in, none were more versatile than Daley Blind. He is a team player who can be an asset as he can play in multiple positions. He is by nature a left wing back who can also play as a full back, a winger, a centre back and a holding midfielder.
Blind has been of excellent use to Manchester United in his four years at the club and played in multiple positions. The player, however, has seen his influence wane at the club since the arrival of Jose Mourinho. It is being reported that Blind is wanted by Inter Milan and AS Roma. Although United triggered a one year extension in his contract, the player is frustrated with the lack of first-team action and is ready to take a pay cut next season to secure a move to Italy in search of regular game time.
As no transfer for him has been confirmed yet, the clubs in the England can look to make a move for him. Here are three options he can consider.
The Merseyside club has a thin squad and they have been playing some fantastic football this season. Their forwards have played excellent football scoring goals left, right and centre. The players at the back, however, still need to tighten up.
At left back, Robertson has been excellent but the player will need some backup with Alberto Moreno failing to perform. This would make a good move for Liverpool to get Blind who is good in attack as well.
The Blue team of Merseyside has turned into a major buying power in the transfer market. Owing to the financial power of their new owner, the club has brought in many new players. They have spent a lot of money in the market and will look to spend even more come the summer as they will want to overhaul a large chunk of their squad.
It is in this situation that getting versatile players like Blind will help their cause of performing better next season.
Spurs and Danny Rose are yet to come to an agreement over a new contract and this would leave a hole in their squad if Rose were to leave. Getting in a solid replacement like Blind, who also has plenty of English league experience will help the team perform better next season.
