United have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Ajax defender this summer as Louis van Gaal looks to shore up his rearguard options at Old Trafford.
Blind, who can play at left-back, centre-half, left wing and central midfield, has long been a target for Van Gaal, who coached him in the Dutch national team.
Blind made 29 league appearances for Ajax last season, scoring one goal and making one assist.
