Serie A club make contact with Man Utd regarding deadline day transfer

ROMA are in talks to sign Daley Blind from Manchester United, according to reports in Italy.

Blind is now on the sidelines with ankle ligament damage but has fallen down the pecking order for the left-back slot, with Jose Mourinho instead preferring converted winger Ashley Young and Luke Shaw for the role.

Speaking about Roma's interest, Danny told La Roma24: "Right now, the time is running out, because it's the last day of the window".

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

Blind has been on the fringes of United's squad this term and Luke Shaw's form at left-back has put him even further down the pecking order. "The price is good, but the negotiations are hard".

"Mourinho wants to keep him in the group".

"[Manager Jose] Mourinho wants to keep this group together. Maybe if we had a few days, a week perhaps [a deal would be possible], but we've only got a few hours, so it's really very hard".

Blind has reportedly already agreed to the move in principle, and is now awaiting an agreement between the two clubs.

He failed to start a single Eredivisie match during his spell in the Netherlands and sees his season-long loan cut short on the final day of trading in the January window.

The club's major transfer business was concluded with the stunning swap deal involving Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The utility man made his fair share of appearances last season under Jose Mourinho, but has found himself on the outside looking in more often than not this season.
