Manchester United are set to bid for Ajax utility Daley Blind.

The Sunday Mirror says new boss Louis van Gaal is expected to sanction a £15million offer for the versatile 24-year-old in the next 48 hours after losing out to Barcelona in the race to sign Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen.

Barca are also ­interested in Blind, but their successful pursuit of Vermaelen has strengthened the Old Trafford giants' resolve to beat the Catalans to a player Van Gaal knows well.

Ajax are resigned to losing Blind and have already lined up PAOK Athens’ Dutch international Hedwiges Maduro as a replacement.
