Daley Blind’s father Danny has revealed that the offer he received from Manchester United last year was fantastic, but still opted to reject Louis van Gaal’s advances. Blind, who has now been named as the new head coach of the Holland national team, opted not to follow his son to Old Trafford last year despite the fact that Van Gaal wanted him to join his back-room staff. Following the departure of Guus Hiddink from his role as Van Gaal’s successor in the Netherlands set up, Blind will now try and navigate a route to the European Championships with the four remaining qualification games. Holland are currently third in their group, behind Iceland and the Czech Republic. In transfer news David de Gea apparently wants to have completed his move to Real Madrid before Monday, when United’s pre-season training is set to begin. Reports in Spain say De Gea isn’t keen on returning to Carrington and has already said his goodbyes to those he will be leaving behind in Manchester.
