The Ajax technical director insisted that any suitors will have to pay the “absolute price” for the midfielder this summer and said no concrete offers have been made
Ajax technical director Marc Overmars has warned that Daley Blind will only be sold for big money this summer and denied talk of any negotiations with Manchester United.
There has been a great deal of speculation surrounding the versatile midfielder, with the Red Devils being heavily linked to the 24-year-old who was voted the Eredivisie player of the year last season.
And Overmars, says Blind will only be allowed to leave for his “absolute price” before September 1, and that his representatives know he can go for less money in a year’s time.
“We believe that we currently have a strong team and want Daley to stay for another year,” he told De Telegraaf.
“Only if the absolute 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.”
The former Arsenal forward also insists there has been no contact with the Premier League club.
“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.”
