After a stuttering start to the season, United have hit form in the last six weeks and have won their last six league games in succession and sit third in the table just eight points behind league leaders Chelsea, who they play at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
With the side beginning to click under new manager Louis van Gaal, Blind, who joined from Ajax in the summer, says the Red Devils can challenge for the title next season:
“I think Manchester United is always a club that is fighting for the title.” The Dutch international told The Telegraph.
“We have to watch ourselves this season, our own games, focus on that and then we will see where it ends.”
“We have improved a lot and are still improving and we really are one team.” he added.
United are still in with a slim chance of claiming the league title this year, but they would need to win against the Blues and hope for an almighty collapse from Jose Mourinho’s side as the season enters it’s final stage.
But the impressive win against Manchester City in the derby at the weekend, combined with recent victories over Liverpool and Tottenham will have given United fans renewed optimism ahead of the new campaign.
