Manchester United's Daley Blind: I turned down Arsenal as a boy

The ESPN FC discuss Manchester United's defensive structure this upcoming season as Steve Nicol does not see any world-class defenders in the side so far.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti believes a deal for Nicolas Otamendi is likely to happen this summer, seeing the Valencia defender move to Manchester United.

Daley Blind has said he rejected an "incredible" offer from Arsenal as a teenager.

Blind, who joined Manchester United for £14.4 million last year, said he decided to stay at Ajax for far less money.

The versatile Netherlands international, 25, said he had been impressed by Arsenal when he visited London but has no regrets about remaining in his homeland.

"I had the chance to move to London at a young age," Blind told the Daily Mirror. "I was in the Ajax academy and one day I came home from...

Jose Mourinho responds to Shaka Hislop's criticism of his Chelsea team in the second half of last season - to his face.

With aging defenders and money to spend, Chelsea have their eye on John Stones, and ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti says it's a necessary investment.

Jose Mourinho has hit back at Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez's wife after she joked her husband had to deal with the "messes" the Portuguese left at his former clubs.

Benitez had spent time in charge of Inter Milan and Chelsea before taking on his current role at Real, and his wife told La Region: "Real Madrid are the third of Jose Mourinho's old teams Rafa has coached. We tidy up his messes."

However, Mourinho, who returned to Chelsea in 2013, highlighted the fact that Benitez had only directly replaced...
