Monchi explains why they didn’t bought Daley Blind
Roma technical director Monchi has actually described why his club didn’t follow through with their pursuit of Manchester United Daley Blind.
The Dutchman had actually been on the Italian’s club’s radar for much of the January transfer window based on the reports and it appeared one due deadline day that a transfer for a sure thing.
Absolutely nothing took place and Blind stays a United player, at least for the rest of the season if rumours are to be thought.
The footballer wasn’t part of Jose Mourinho’s good books this season and not for an absence of form but due to the fact that he does not fit his managers’s kind of players.
Mourinho is known for his preference of pacy or strong players, however Daley fits neither description and it appears as though he was dispensable to the club.
As per Goal, Monchi stated: “We talked with Jonathan Silva even prior to the window opened, in expectation of Emerson leaving.
” Blind was offered to us 3 or 4 days back, however we chose he was not the ideal player, even from a financial perspective, which is very important.”
Talk of economics appears to make sense however talk of Daley Blind not being ideal for Roma seems a little severe or inaccurate.
The slower speed of the Serie A and more defensively or tactically sound teams must match the Dutchman more than the Premier League does.
Blind is famous for his intelligence and flexibility and it can be argued that he would’ve done an outstanding job for Roma no matter where he would’ve used the pitch.
Salaries can be understood and it’s most likely that the Italian side will be incapable of matching his present revenues at Manchester United.
Roma aren’t precisely poor however they do have to run within a budget plan and the indication for that is their preliminary effort to sign Daley on loan.
