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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
