Blind stayed home on Sunday when United flew out to Los Angeles for a pre-season tour of America so he could complete his return to the Dutch club.

That was reduced to just seven appearances for United in the Premier League last season as a result of injuries and being out of favour, with four of those appearances coming from the start. He was part of four title winning teams with Ajax.
