Daley Blind is a master at breaking the lines with Manchester United fans reminiscing and bemoaning his transfer following their side's FA Cup exit.
The Reds were underwhelming at the King Power Stadium with Fred slammed for his performance in the middle of the park.
But their midfield could have been a lot more productive if they hadn't of sold Blind in 2018.
A stunning compilation of his range of passing shows Man United have been crying out for a player like him in defensive midfield.
He also produced two outrageous passes during Ajax's 5-0 win over ADO Den Haag, highlighting his ability to break the lines.

When it comes to breaking lines, Daley Blind deserves to be named among the best in the world. His reading of the game is from an extremely high level and the execution is too.- :gem: (@TheEuropeanLad) February 20, 2021
He is such a satisfying player to watch in midfield under a coach that knows how to use him. https://t.co/oU6vVefxA4
Man United supporters caught wind of his performance on Sunday with one fan claiming he'd be the "best DM and best CB right now" at Old Trafford.

A second said: "Still disappointed that he left United. So much quality."
A third added: "He is an amazing player honestly, such a calming presence at the back. We could use some of his composure at the back."
Another wrote: "LVG played him CB, LB and Jose is not a possession based manager and got Matic for himself quickly. Blind's weight on the ball, accuracy and angles of passing through lines is beautiful to see."
Blind was snapped up by Louis van Gaal and departed under Jose Mourinho's spell, with the Dutchman now enjoying his football at his boyhood club.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer currently has the likes of Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Fred at his disposal.
But is Blind the kind of player Man United need in defensive midfield? Let us know what you think.
