Manchester United’s transfer business is looking better by the day. After a slow start in the market this summer the club has now signed some real class and will add to that with the purchase of the highly versatile Daley Blind, according to widespread reports.

Although Blind is largely seen as a defender he will also add much needed quality to a midfield which has been shockingly bad this season. Blind is a comfortable performer in the defensive midfield role and could find himself positioned their periodically if the injuries persist and Manchester United don’t buy another central midfielder in the next few days.
All in all it’s an excellent signing for a player with great technique, game intelligence and a truly world-class left foot.
The 24 year old will have no chance of playing this weekend but will join up with the squad after the international break which starts after this round of Premier League fixtures.
Blind joins Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Angel Di Maria and Vanja Milinković-Savić in what is looking like and increasingly exciting list of arrivals at the club this summer.
