According to Marca, Barcelona are keeping tabs on Manchester United’s Daley Blind ahead of a possible January transfer. 

The Catalan giants are keen to strengthen their defence next month as they look to consolidate their place at the top of La Liga.

According to Marca, Barcelona are eyeing a move for Stefan de Vrij, but could also turn their attention to Daley Blind, who is currently out of favour at Old Trafford and is reportedly available for a transfer.

Blind’s current deal at Manchester United expires in the summer but the Premier League side are set to use an option to extend it by a year in order to get a higher transfer fee for the Dutch international.

De Vrij is Barcelona’s first choice signing, but with a number of clubs also interested in the Lazio centre-back, Blind may be the cheaper option for coach Ernesto Valverde.
