Inter Boss Breaks Silence On Man United Outcast, Turkish Giants Plot January Move
Manchester United outcast Daley Blind has not started a Premier League game since August and has been linked with a January exit.
Inter have been closely linked with the Netherlands international and head coach Luciano Spalletti has finally broken the silence.
Spalletti was asked about interest in Blind. The Italian boss did not rule out the transfer but instead chose not to comment.
“Blind? I talk about my players, because the points we win in the next few matches will be done with them,” Spalletti told reporters.
“I prefer to talk about my players because it is with them that we will look to be successful.”

United signed Blind from Ajax for £13.8million in 2014 and he did initially enjoy success starting in their FA Cup and Europa League final triumphs in successive seasons.
Blind has however, struggled for playing time this season under the stewardship of Jose Mourinho.
The Netherlands international will be out of contract in the summer and United do not appear keen in offering him an extension.
The 27-year-old has been advised to leave Old Trafford and join Fenerbahce according to Netherlands boss boss Dick Advocaat.
Fotomac claim the Yellow Canaries contacted Advocaat regarding Blind.
Per the source, Advocaat gave the full-back a positive reference and told his former club that he would advise Blind to make the move.
Fenerbahce have prioritised signing a new full-back in January.
The Istanbul giants are currently just one point behind Super Lig leaders Basaksehir.
