£75,000-A-Week Star To Complete United Move As Transfer Deadline Draws Closer

Dutch versatile player Daley Blind has emerged as a deadline transfer target for Serie A club AS Roma.

According to Sky Sports, Roma have identify Blind as a potential replacement for Emerson Palmieri.

Palmieri left Roma for Chelsea in a £17m deal, signing four-and-a-half year deal.

Blind has struggle for regular play time this season since Jose Mourinho deploy winger Ashley Young to the left back position.

The 27-year old star is currently behind Young and Luke Shaw at the left-back position while Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and Jojo are ahead of him at the centre-back.

The £75,000-a-week star joined United from Ajax in 2014 in a £13m deal under the reign of Louis van Gaal and was a regular starter for the tactician.

It is believed the Red Devils are willing to sell Blind but would only listen to offers that match their valuation.

The Manchester club wants to recoup £13m they paid to Roma for Blind services in 2014.

Report also has it that Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make a shock move to Chelsea or MLS club LA Galaxy before the summer.

The experience striker has struggled for game time this season due to injuries and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez means his services may no longer be needed at Old Trafford.

Both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are highly rated at United and Mourinho would like to give the talented duo an opportunity to develop their talents with regular play time.
