Check out all the latest Manchester United news and transfer gossip from today.

Manchester United scouts were in attendance to run the rule over Daley Blind during Ajax's surprise 3-1 defeat against PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie on Sunday.

That's according to United We Stand fanzine editor and ESPN correspondent Andy Mitten, who reports that the Red Devils have already negotiated a deal for the Holland international.

Louis van Gaal is a known admirer of the versatile Dutchman, and picked him in his 23-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil this summer.

Blind is reportedly valued by Ajax at £16m, and is set to be the next player through the door at Old Trafford following the imminent arrival of Angel di Maria in a blockbuster deal from Real Madrid.

The Argentine winger will cost Manchester United £59.7m - a price that will smash the British transfer record which saw Fernando Torres join Chelsea from Liverpool in 2011.

Di Maria will undergo a medical on Tuesday before being officially unveiled by the club - but won't be available for tonight's Capital One Cup clash against MK Dons.
