Manchester United 'will not allow Daley Blind to join Roma'

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

United have already triggered a clause to extend Blinds contract until 2019, but are willing to let him leave, with Ashley Young and Luke Shaw seemingly cementing their places as the two front runners to be the long term left back. Since his move to the Old Trafford, he has made 139 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals and chalking up ten assists in the process.

Blind Sr said: "It's really hard because Manchester United want to keep him to play in the Champions League, the Premier League and the FA Cup". Though it's been a different story with Jose Mourinho.

The decision to retain Blind comes amid the absence of Ivory Coast global Eric Bailly, who has not played since November after undergoing ankle surgery, while Axel Tuanzebe has moved to Aston Villa on a six-month deal.

However, Blind won't be moving to Roma, according to Italian football expert Gianluca di Marzio, who claims the Serie A outfit will instead sign Jonathan Silva from Sporting Lisbon.

Italian giants Roma were said to be looking at Blind to replace Emerson Palmieri, who moved to Chelsea on Tuesday, but they have baulked at United's £13million asking price for the Holland global.

The Dutch defender has been very quiet throughout this transfer window, barely playing, and linked with few to no clubs, until Wednesday January 30th.

He appears to be reduced to something of a bit-part role this season, chipping in for games that sees perhaps more important players receive a rest.
