'Blind to Roma is difficult'

'Blind to Roma is difficult'

The Serie A side have loss defender Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea, and the club are seeking reinforcements before the window slams shut.

Former Ajax and Holland manager Danny Blind spoke to LaRoma24 today, claiming that Coach Jose Mourinho was unlikely to let his son go because "he wants to keep the squad together".

Blind made 39 appearances in all competitions last season for United, but he has only started three games in the Premier League this term.

The 27-year old was earlier linked with a shock move to Barcelona as well, however those rumours died down pretty quickly and Roma are the latest suitors in his pursuit. I can confirm that Roma want him, but Manchester United don't want to loan him out and only want a permanent solution.

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.

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.

"Mourinho wants to keep him in the group. Maybe if we had a few days, a week perhaps [a deal would be possible], but we've only got a few hours, so it's really very hard".

According to the Daily Mirror, they are looking to recoup the £13m that they paid for the defender back in 2014, while the player is thought to be keen on the move. Alexis Sanchez is the sole arrival from Arsenal.

A versatile operator, Blind can play as a left-back, a centre-back or even in a defensive midfield position, which makes him a valuable utility player to have in the squad.
