Man Utd chiefs choose to cash in on Blind

Manchester United are preparing to sell Daley Blind this summer.

The Mirror says United will still listen to offers for Blind – despite enforcing a one-year contract extension on the Dutchman.

United have triggered a clause in Blind's current deal that will keep him at the club for a further 12 months because it will enable them to recoup £14million they paid Ajax for the versatile 27-year-old four years ago.

Roma failed with a bid to take the defender to Italy on loan because United wanted to strike a permanent deal.

But United know the Serie A club will be back in for Blind in the summer – and by taking up the option of a contract extension they can demand a transfer fee.
