Man United’s 27-year-old versatile star eyes shock January departure

October 22, 2017

According to the reports, Manchester United versatile defender Daley Blind is open to the prospect of leaving the club to join Turkish giants Fenerbahce during the mid-season transfer window.

The 27-year-old Dutchman has played just one minute in the Premier League since the end of August, having previously played a full part in the Red Devils’ opening three fixtures.

The former Ajax Amsterdam defender is growing increasingly frustrated at the Theatre of Dreams and, according to Hurriyet, a number of foreign clubs are ready to make a move in January.

Among those said to be interested are Fenerbahce, with the Turkish Super Lig outfit willing to test United’s resolve by tabling a bid.

Daley Blind is not the only Man United player who has been linked with a surprise move, as Anthony Martial could also be leaving the Old Trafford with Arsenal keeping close tabs.

Following the arrival of new talents and the improvements in performance from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial has found it difficult to find regular game time for United this season. The Frenchman could be tempted to move to Emirates next summer.
