Manchester United hero Daley Blind has admitted he was tempted to return to the club at one stage.
The Netherlands international was at Old Trafford from 2014 to 2018, earning a lot of fan adoration during that time.
While Blind is now at the tail end of his career, the defender admitted to thinking about calling Erik ten Hag to facilitate a move to United.
“No [I didn’t call him],” he told the UTD Podcast.
“To be honest, he has the same agent as me, so the connection is not that far away.
“But yeah, he did not really need me at that moment. He [had] already bought some players in. [Lisandro] Martinez as well, in the same position, and I am not blaming him for that.
“I am very thankful for the time [I had] with him. I learned a lot from him.”
