Manchester United could reportedly be ready to try a swap deal to sign Ajax forward Justin Kluivert, with Daley Blind offered in a move in the opposite direction.

Blind has not been a regular at Old Trafford in recent times, having joined from Ajax during Louis van Gaal’s reign, but without reaching the levels really expected of him.

Alexis Sanchez is yet to fully settle since his January move from Arsenal, and Mourinho will need to have more quality up front next season if his side are to close the gap with runaway league leaders Manchester City next year.
