Man United transfers: Ajax willing to sell Daley Blind for the right price
Man United transfers: Frank de Boer admits that Ajax could sell Daley Blind if a big-money offer arrives
Frank de Boer concedes that Ajax would have no choice but to sell Daley Blind if Manchester United came in with a big enough offer.
The defender, who can also play in midfield, has been touted as a possible target for new Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal in recent weeks.
The temptation is there if such a big club comes

The 24-year-old Netherlands international has also been named as a potential target for Serie A side Inter Milan this summer.
And amid reports that Blind has already been house-hunting in Manchester ahead of a move, Ajax coach De Boer admits that it would be difficult to keep the player in Holland if a big-money offer were to arrive.
“We all know that if there is a certain amount on the table we cannot refuse. Then we’ll wish him all the best,” De Boer said.
“But I have not heard anything about it, so I am assuming that he still stays for a year.
“I think it’s best for him, but on the other hand, the temptation is there if such a big club comes.”
Blind made 29 league appearances for Ajax last season, scoring one goal and making one assist.
