They place Blind in the orbit of the Real

Daley Blind has become one of the ‘sweets’ of this winter market that opens next week. And it cannot be ruled out that he ends up wearing the Real Sociedad shirt, because in their country they talk about an offer from the San Sebastian club. The left-back, a full international with the Netherlands, with whom he has accumulated almost a hundred matches, has terminated his contract with Ajax Amsterdam after finishing his participation in the World Cup in Qatar, where he was the undisputed starter with the Dutch team, reaching to score a goal. The movement has surprised the entire football world, because his contract was up at the end of this season and he was one of his most important players. It is evident that he is looking for a new destination in the January market, perhaps his last big contract at 32 years of age. And his first ‘girlfriends’ have not been long in coming.

Among them is the Royal Society, according to the prestigious Dutch media ‘De Teelegraph’. He assures that the veteran defense is torn between an offer from the Belgian club Antwerp, where Marc Overmars is as sports director, and the San Sebastian clubwho has not denied a movement that, in any case, is striking, since in Donostia they have the position covered with Aihen Muñoz and Diego Rico, and because they have the 25 chips of the first team occupied, so it should start before to some player.

Ajax’s own sports director, Edwin Van der Sar has been in charge of giving official status to the unexpected departure of Daley Blind : “Over the course of the last few days, we reached an agreement with Daley to terminate his contract. I hope he can find another club to end his successful career. Together with Daley, we have decided on a match at the Arena, where he can properly say goodbye to the fans..

In the case of Real, it would be a market option that is put on the table to be able to reinforce a position currently covered, but weakened for the future, because Aihen Muñoz has just come out of a long injury, and Diego Rico terminates contract at the end of this course without still having a renewal offer on the table, nor signs of starting a negotiation. Despite his 32 years, Blind is seen as a good opportunity offered by the market to reinforce the defense with a player with plenty of experience for the next few years. Because he is a versatile player who, in addition to being a left back, can act in the center of the defense and even as a defensive pivot in a moment of need. In the San Sebastian club they were aware that this movement could take place, they were prepared and there have been contacts with their agent. But for the moment, nothing else.

La Real, in any case, should solve their chip problem first, because they have all those of the first team covered. So for the moment it would be impossible to register him in LaLiga. Although we must not forget that among those 25 registered players is the long-term injured Umar Sadiq, with the hope that he will recover for the final stretch of the competition. But you could handle that situation.

Blind, who grew up in the Ajax youth academy, had a brief stint at Groninghem to gain experience and then stand out with the club that saw him grow. After the good performances, Manchester United signed him in 2014 for 17.5 million euros, and after four seasons with the ‘red devils’, he returned to the club he lovesin which today sees the curtain fall.

After 333 official matches with Ajax, and 7 Eredivises, 2 Johan Cruijff Shield, and 2 Dutch Super Cups, Blind leaves Ajax as a legend. There are several MLS teams that have taken notice of him. He is a versatile player, with a lot of experience and a career with many titles. He won the Europa League, the FA Cup and the League Cup with Manchester United. And he has played for the ‘Oranje’ team 99 times.

Now the Real has set its eyes on the Dutch player, although for the moment he has not signed anything. He would be a good signing at zero cost, not only for this season, but also for the coming years. It will be necessary to see what decision Blind makes now, because the project that they offer him in Belgium with Antwerp is that of a team under construction with a marked Dutch stamp, with Calvin Stengs, for whom Real was also interested in his day, Ekkelenkamp, ​​Janssen and Alderweireld, with Mark van Bommel as coach and Overmars in sports management. But in the Netherlands, the newspaper Het Laatse Nieuws has published the strong appearance of Real Sociedad in the bid, offering them a higher offer than Antwerp. Blind meditates on all his options, because at 32 he is on the verge of signing what may be his last important contract.
