Louis van Gaal has told Manchester United chiefs he wants a deal for Ajax utility Daley Blind.

De Telegraaf says Blind is a serious candidate for a move to Old Trafford over the summer with Luke Shaw's move from Southampton still on the buffers.

Blind is versatile, spending most of the time in midfield for Ajax last season, so how and where he would fit into Van Gaal's new look United remains to be seen.

The defender had a superb game as the Dutch hammered the Spanish on Friday.
