6) It was Blind’s superb long ball that set up now-United team-mate Robin van Persie for his wonderful diving header against Spain at the World Cup this summer.
7) Blind also scored his first international goal at the tournament, finding the back of the net in his country’s 3-0 win in the third-place playoff against host nation Brazil.
8) He’s won at Old Trafford before – Blind came off the bench as Ajax claimed a surprise 2-1 victory against Sir Alex Ferguson’s side in a Europa League match in 2012, though United won 3-2 on aggregate.
9) He’s dating model and dancer Candy-Rae Fleur, a WAG we’ll no doubt be hearing more about in the near future!
10) His signing will mean United have spent roughly £56.8m on three left-backs this summer, with Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo also joining the club.
