Barcelona are reportedly interested in a £14million transfer move for Manchester United defender Daley Blind.
The versatile is rumoured to be one of the first names who could be axed from the club’s first-team under new manager Jose Mourinho, which has alerted Barca.
Blind has had two decent seasons at Old Trafford, failing to hold down a regular position due to his versatility.
However, this is seen as an advantage to Barcelona, who are admirers of his defensive strength combined with intelligence and ability on the ball.
The Catalan giants could need men at the back, with neither Thomas Vermaelen nor Jeremy Mathieu impressing on a consistent basis, and could land Blind for around £14m.
Mourinho would favour a more traditional centre half in his back line, and could allow the former Ajax man to leave for a decent amount if Barcelona come calling.
