Daley Blind has not travelled to the United States for Manchester United’s pre-season tour as he is set to move to Ajax this week, according to BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone.

Blind’s future at Old Trafford has been a source of speculation this summer after he struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team under Jose Mourinho last season.

Indeed, the 28-year-old defender only started four Premier League games for Manchester United as they missed out on winning a trophy last term.

Reporter Stone is now claiming that a fee with Ajax has been agreed and that Blind is poised to return to the Amsterdam club after having failed to win over Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Stone wrote on Twitter: “As per yesterday re fee agreed, Daley Blind not on board @ManUtd flight to LA this evening. Ajax transfer will be done over coming days.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as the Red Devils look to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

Manchester United ended up in second place in the Premier League table last season but without a trophy in Mourinho’s second campaign in charge at the club.

The Red Devils have already signed Lee Grant, Diogo Dalot and Fred so far this summer.
