AJ-AXE DALEY BLIND has had his Ajax contract ripped up six months early after coming to an agreement with the club.
The Dutchman, 32, has made 18 appearances for Ajax this season across the Eredivisie and the Champions League.
Blind has agreed to leave Ajax
He was expected to remain in Amsterdam until June 2023, but he will now become a free agent on New Year’s Day.
An official statement from Ajax read: “Ajax and Daley Blind have terminated their contract.
“The defender’s contract was set to expire on June 30, 2023 but will now end on December 31, 2022.”
Chief executive Edwin van der Sar said: “Over the course of the last few days, we reached an agreement with Daley to terminate his contract.
“I hope he can find another club to end his successful career with.
“Together with Daley, we have decided on a match in the Arena where he can say a proper goodbye to the supporters.”
Blind re-joined Ajax from Manchester United in July 2018 for a transfer fee of around £14million.
He has since won three Eredivisie titles, two KNVB Cups and a Dutch Super Cup
Royal Antwerp are reportedly interested in signing the defender, but Man Utd fans want to see him return to Old Trafford.
One person tweeted: “Bring him back to United.”
Another added: “@ManUtd don’t waste this golden opportunity.”
While a third said: “The realistic signing EtH will make in the coming days.”
Blind appeared in each of Holland’s five games during the Qatar World Cup.
