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."

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
