Defender agrees to complete £18.5m Man United transfer move, sends out emotional message
Daley Blind has completed his move from Manchester United back to his former club Ajax – but not before leaving an emotional goodbye message on his Twitter feed.
Blind has signed a four-year deal with the Dutch club, whom he left four years ago to join United.
The deal for the 28-year-old is understood to be worth an initial $18.5million (£14.1million), with add-ons that could see the fee rise to $24.3million (£18.5million).
Blind made 141 appearances for United over that period, but found his opportunities increasingly limited under Jose Mourinho and played only seven Premier League matches last season.
Blind wrote on Twitter: “I want to say how proud I am to be a part of the Manchester United family. To play for the biggest club in the world with such a history meant a lot to me. I had 4 great years with 4 trophy’s!
“I want to thank you for all the love and support I received and still get. I will never forget some of the special games and moments, I will miss you ‘The Theatre of Dreams’! But now its time to go home.”http://www.fanchesterunited.com/defender-agrees-to-complete-18-5m-man-united-transfer-move-sends-out-emotional-message/
