Manchester United block Daley Blind move to Roma on deadline day

"I can confirm that Roma want him but Manchester United don't want to let him go on loan, only on a permanent basis".

"They don't want to sell him now as well, but only in the summer".

Deadline day is looming, and the future of United's Dutchman has come into debate.

But, he has fallen down the pecking order at the club ever since the arrival of Jose Mourinho in 2016.

The decision to retain Blind comes amid the absence of Ivory Coast worldwide Eric Bailly, who has not played since November after undergoing ankle surgery, while Axel Tuanzebe has moved to Aston Villa on a six-month deal.

Andrew McCabe's Resignation Brings Early End To Tumultuous Relationship With White House
Trump has repeatedly tweeted that the Justice Department has insufficiently investigated Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign. The White House has since said it had nothing to do with Mr McCabe's departure from the Federal Bureau of Investigation .

And Danny Blind, the United left-back's dad and agent, has revealed further reasons for his son's move to Roma falling through after the Red Devils apparently refused to entertain a loan offer.

And it is understood that the player is keen on securing a move away from Old Trafford in search of regular football.

Roma are on the look out for a last minute bargain after Emerson Palmieri completes a move to Chelsea on Tuesday evening, leaving just Aleksandar Kolarov as the first choice left back in the Italian capital. And the Giallorossi have identified Blind as the man to replace the departed Brazilian and to that end have reportedly made an official enquiry with the English giants over the possibility of a sale.

He appears to be reduced to something of a bit-part role this season, chipping in for games that sees perhaps more important players receive a rest. Even if United hold on to the Dutchman in January, a move in the summer window is a strong possibility.
