Barcelona keen to land United’s versatile man

According to reports, Spanish giants Barcelona want to sign Manchester United defender Daley Blind on a free transfer when his contract expires in next summer.

The Dutch international is out of contract at the end of the season and there appears to have been no talks over the potential triggering of an automatic one-year extension. It is reportedly Barcelona are interested in taking advantage of his versatility, with Blind able to play in midfield, as a left-back and at the heart of defence.

But with Javier Mascherano leaving the Nou Camp next summer, the 27-year-old will most likely be utilised as a ball-playing centre-back should he make the free transfer to Spain. The report adds that Blind could even be booted out of United next month, albeit for a small fee.

Another player said to be on their radar is Lazio’s Stefan De Vrij.
