Barcelona’s shock January move for Man United defender.
According to a small update in Spanish paper Marca on Thursday, it’s reported that Barcelona could be set to sign a Man United defender in the upcoming window.
Barcelona have recently been hit with injury problems at the back.
Specifically, Samuel Umtiti, arguably the standout defender in La Liga this season, is sidelined for several months.
Yet, rather than targeting a centre-half, Barcelona are reportedly looking at Daley Blind.
Daley Blind’s Old Trafford future
It’s been a rough season for the Dutch defender at Old Trafford.
While he started the first three games of the season, he’s barely been seen in the Premier League since. Indeed Blind’s last appearance was a one minute cameo in gameweek 6 against Southampton.
Blind was a staple under Louis van Gaal, but has seen his game time dwindle under Jose Mourinho.
Ashley Young seems locked in at left wing-back, while Marcos Rojo has returned to the fold recently to drop Blind further down the pecking order.
