Ajax coach Frank de Boer insists there are no concrete offers on the table for the club's stars, but cannot discount a departure, as chatter over Manchester United making a move for left-back Daley Blind continues to grow.

It had been claimed in England that Manchester United had agreed a fee with Ajax for Blind, who Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal knows well from his time in charge of the Netherlands.

But the player's agent quickly rubbished such talk and now De Boer has confirmed there are no bids on the table. The Ajax coach accepts matters can change, but has promised to get a high price for any stars who do leave the Amsterdam ArenA.

"There is nothing concrete", De Boer told a press conference, when asked about players leaving.


"At this time we are going to continue with these guys. But you can never exclude anything.


"If big clubs come, we won't stand against it. But we will ask for a top price", he added.

And De Boer confirmed that Blind, along with goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, will be in action against AZ Alkmaar this weekend.

"Daley Blind and Jasper Cillessen will play", the Ajax boss said.
