Man Utd Flop Eric Bailly Wanted By Arsenal And Tottenham

Manchester United flop Eric Bailly is reportedly wanted by Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Ivory Coast international has struggled for games this season, starting just three times in the Premier League.

Bailly, 24, finds himself behind Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in Jose Mourinho’s pecking order.

And the Daily Record claims Bailly is now eyeing an Old Trafford exit in January.

It’s said that North London rivals Arsenal and Spurs are in for his signature, two-and-a-half years after Bailly joined United from Villarreal for £30million.

However, the report adds that United are reluctant to sell Bailly as they feel he still has room to develop.

Mourinho would apparently prefer to offload Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo instead, freeing up a space for a new centre-back.

The Record states thatNapoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly has emerged as a top target for Mourinho.

Other defenders linked with the Theatre of Dreams include Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Inter Milan’s Skinriar.

Bailly could yet end up staying at United, but he may need assurances over a future role in the team.
