Fenerbahce reportedly join the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan in the race to sign out-of-favour Manchester United defender Daley Blind.

Fenerbahce are the latest club to have expressed an interest in out-of-favour Manchester United defender Daley Blind, according to reports.

Blind has struggled for first-team football at Old Trafford so far this season, with Ashley Young preferred at left-back and Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof all above him in the pecking order at centre-back.

The Dutch international has made just three Premier League starts all season - the most recent of which came in August - leading to speculation over his future ahead of the January transfer window.

The likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan have previously been credited with an interest in the 27-year-old, and Turkish outlet Fotomac now reports that Fenerbahce have joined the race to sign Blind.

Barca have reportedly identified Blind as a possible replacement for Javier Mascherano, while Inter are looking to bolster their defensive options as they push for the Serie A title.

Blind is currently due to be out of contract at the end of the season, although United do have the option to extend his deal by a further 12 months.
