Former Man Utd star Daley Blind set for transfer to LaLiga after leaving Bayern Munich | The SunJuly 7, 2023
FORMER Man Utd star Daley Blind is set for a fresh start at FC Girona after a frustrating spell at Bayern Munich.
The 33-year-old made just four league appearances after joining the Bundesliga giants in January and hasn't featured since playing six minutes against Augsburg in March.
The Dutchman is now set to play in La Liga for the first time in his career with a free transfer agreed, pending a medical.
Blind, who has 101 international caps, would become the first Dutch star to play for the Catalan club.
Since leaving Manchester United in 2018 it hasn’t been all plain sailing for Blind, including a scary injury in a Champions League match for Ajax when he complained about suffering from dizziness in 2019.
A medical examination revealed he had a heart muscle inflammation, but Blind has continued to play after having an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) fitted to regulate his heartbeat.

He later collapsed in a friendly against Hertha Berlin with his team-mates quickly instantly racing over to him and medics arriving seconds later.
Erik ten Hag, the Man Utd manager who was Blind's Ajax boss at the time, revealed "his ICD went off and he was subbed off straight away".
Blind returned to football but later admitted pal Christian Eriksen's collapse on the pitch at Euro 2020 , during which he died before being resuscitated, led to him "overcoming a mental hurdle" to keep playing.
Despite this Blind recovered and starred for the Netherlands at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
