Manchester United's Daley Blind to Roma is 'very difficult' - Danny Blind

Roma are interested in signing the Dutchman, who is in the final year of his contract

Manchester United defender Daley Blind is in talks to sign for Roma after the Serie A giants let Emerson Palmieri join Chelsea for £25million.

Luke Shaw has recently returned from injury for United, while Ashley Young has been preferred to Blind at left-back and the Dutchman has fallen right down the pecking order.

Gene Sweeney Jr/Getty ImagesRoma and Manchester United are reportedly in the advanced stages of a deal that would bring Dutch global Daley Blind to the Italian capital.

He added: "The choice of Italy would be interesting for him, but Manchester United are a great club and they don't need to sell players as they don't need money".

"Time is running out because it's the last day of the transfer window", Blind Sr told LaRoma24.

It is said the Red Devils will then likely trigger the one-year extension in Blind's deal and look to sell him for an increased amount next summer instead.

"The group is very united and they want him to stay".

Mourinho wants to keep this group.

The Mirror report further claims that Italian sources suggest Blind himself is keen. Maybe if we had a few days, a week perhaps, but we've only got a few hours.

He failed to start a single Eredivisie match during his spell in the Netherlands and sees his season-long loan cut short on the final day of trading in the January window.

Four players have already been allowed to leave Old Trafford this month with the permanent exit of Henrikh Mkhitaryan accompanied by the departures on loan of James Wilson, Demetri Mitchell and Tuanzebe. The arrival of Jose Mourinho saw his opportunities become much more restricted last season, a trend which has continued into the current campaign.
