Manchester United player linked with Turkish transfer

Manchester United defender Daley Blind has been linked with a move to Fenerbahce.

Blind moved to Old Trafford three years ago, being one of Louis van Gaal’s first signings of his two year reign at Old Trafford. He initially joined as a holding midfielder, before the Dutch manger converted his compatriot to a centre back during his second year in charg, where he made 56 appearances.

However, since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at the club, Blind has found his opportunities far more restricted, making 39 appearances under the Portuguese boss last season.

He started the first three games of the season this year, but since then, has made just one minute of Premier League football, falling behind the likes of Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young in the pecking order at left back.

However, Turkish publication Hurriyet claim that Blind is a target for Turksh giants Fenerbahce, with the defender apparently keen on the move after starting to grow frustrated.

United have done a couple of bits of business with Fenerbahce in the last couple of years, selling both Nani and Robin van Persie to the Super Lig side.
