Blind, who can play at the back or in midfield, was a key member of the Holland side which reached the semi-finals of the World Cup under Louis van Gaal.

And United have repeatedly been linked with a move for the 24-year-old since van Gaal took charge at Old Trafford earlier this summer.

But Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf quote Ajax director of football Marc Overmars saying: "There's some rumblings around Daley, some clubs enquired, but there is no concrete offer. And with Manchester United, there is no contact at all."

And, according to Overmars, it will take a huge offer to prise Blind out of Amsterdam before next summer.

"We believe that we currently have a strong team and want Daley to stay for another year," he said. "Only if the absolute top price is paid is a transfer negotiable.

"Daley's management know how we feel at the moment. Next year we will have a much more lenient policy, we are willing to talk with Daley and we will settle for a reasonable price."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
