Daley Blind has returned from whence he came after leaving Manchester United to re-join boyhood club Ajax.
Ajax have paid €16million for the privilege which is actually a sliver more than United spent on the Dutch defender back in 2014.
The 28-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with the Amsterdam club he originally joined as an eight-year-old.
Of course, it’s only natural that Ajax announce the news with a tweaked rendition of the unofficial 2018 World Cup anthem…
DALEY = COMING HOME!!!

Blind made almost 150 senior appearances for Ajax, winning four Eredivisie titles in six seasons before leaving for Old Trafford, where he won an FA Cup, a League Cup and the Europa League in the space of four years.
All in all, this seems like a good deal for both parties – Ajax re-procuring a versatile fan favourite with plenty of mileage left and United getting the kind of money they’d be unlikely to see again for him.
