United fans react on Twitter to imminent Daley Blind signing

Manchester United have announced that they have agreed a deal with Ajax for the transfer of Daley Blind, so what do the fans make of the imminent move?

Manchester United need new players.  But it is not simply a case of throwing money at the problem.  Louis van Gaal needs to ensure he signs the right players.

With time running out on another transfer window, the Dutchman has less and less time to bring in the quality centre-back and the box-to-box midfielder United desperately need.

But United have at least agreed a fee for a player who can do a little bit of both, in the form of Daley Blind.

The Netherlands international can play as a left-back, a central defender and a defensive midfielder, and it is in the latter position that he is expected to feature most regularly for United.

Anyone who watched him at the World Cup will know van Gaal has signed a very good player who will be an improvement on the likes of Darren Fletcher and Tom Cleverley.  But fans will still be hoping the club springs a major surprise or two before the close of business on Monday night.

With Blind nearing a move to United, we took to Twitter to see what their fans thought about the deal, and you can read a selection of what we found below:
