Blind's versatility may be his downfall, according to United icon Scholes, who feels the player may be forced into central midfield.
"I'm not too sure what position he is going to play in," Scholes asked where Blind - primarily used as a left wing-back for the Netherlands - would fit in.
"I don't think he is strong enough for a left-back in England.
"And the only place we can seem to get him into the team in central midfield. He's a very good footballer but is he the answer? We will wait and see.
"We don't really know what position he is. United are not in a position now to be taking risks. They need proper central midfield players. They obviously haven't fancied them or haven't been able to get them.
