Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is considering selling versatile defender Daley Blind to Inter Milan, The Times state.
The Portuguese trainer has taken the hotseat at Old Trafford and wasted little time in crafting his squad, with players coming and going so far this summer.
Mourinho’s teams are seemingly always built on commanding figures at centre-half and as such it remains to be seen what role Blind will play with the Red Devils.
The Netherlands international is most comfortable operating in central midfield but fitted in at the heart of the United defence last term under Louis van Gaal following injuries to others.

But, with Mourinho strengthening both of these areas and Luke Shaw back fit again to take the left-back role, Blind is facing the possibility of time on the sidelines.
Inter are believed to be interested in the hard-working star and talk over a potential move has started according to the report.
Although Blind may not be an automatic starter for United this term, his ability to feature in a number of different positions could well be a valuable asset and as such Mourinho would be advised to think carefully before letting the former Ajax man leave Old Trafford.
The Dutchman’s former manager at the Amsterdam Arena, Frank De Boer, has just taken over from Roberto Mancini at the Milanese outfit.
