Manchester United don't want to sell Daley Blind to Roma

Roma are interested in signing the Dutchman, who is in the final year of his contract

Late last night, a spate of articles appeared suggesting the 27-year-old had been offered to Roma, a club keen to bolster their defence following the €29m sale of Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea.

It's unlikely that Blind will become a regular starter soon - and although Jose Mourinho values the versatility of the Dutchman - Roma's continued interest (as per the same reports, the Italians were interested in him during the summer window as well) could sway the player's mind and in turn convince United to let go of him.

Blind's opportunities this season have been mainly restricted to United's Champions League and domestic cup campaigns, having made just three starts in the Premier League.

The decision to retain Blind comes amid the absence of Ivory Coast worldwide Eric Bailly, who has not played since November after undergoing ankle surgery, while Axel Tuanzebe has moved to Aston Villa on a six-month deal.

Blind Sr said: "It's really hard because Manchester United want to keep him to play in the Champions League, the Premier League and the FA Cup".

Publicly, at least, he made an art of making do, demonstrating a frugality that bordered on asceticism. Entire families descended on the company's stores each week and Ikea's merchandise became ubiquitous.

It is said the Red Devils will then likely trigger the one-year extension in Blind's deal and look to sell him for an increased amount next summer instead.

Blind has been heavily linked with a move to Italy this week after falling out of favour under United boss Jose Mourinho.

Corriere dello Sport have the most detail on it on Wednesday, explaining the two sides are working on a loan deal with a view to buy, although how much for isn't mentioned.

"The group is very united and they want him to stay". It would take a few days, maybe a week, but they are available a few hours.
