Fifth summer signing

Blind, 24, will become United’s fifth summer signing following the arrivals of Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo - who is still waiting for his work permit to be granted - and record signing Angel Di Maria, who joined the Red Devils for a British transfer record fee of £59.7 million from Real Madrid earlier this week.

£14m fee agreed - reports

Manchester United are expected to pay Ajax £14 million for Blind, who worked under United boss Louis van Gaal with the Netherlands national team and is capable of playing at left-back, left wing-back, centre-back and as a holding midfielder.

Blind, who was named the 2014 Dutch Footballer of the Year, will be eligible to make his Manchester United debut against Queens Park Rangers after the international break.
