Spanish La Liga giants Sevilla are plotting a bid for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly as they attempt to lure him back to Spain.
The Ivorian international centre back played for Espanyol and Villareal before joining the Red Devils from the Yellow Submarines in a £30m deal in the summer of 2016.
He was one of the first signings when Jose Mourinho took over as the Manchester United manager almost three years ago.
The interest of Sevilla in Eric Bailly was revealed by Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo via the Daily Mirror.
Eric Bailly had a good start to life at Old Trafford before he fell out with Mourinho who was eventually sacked by the club last month.
He has continued his questionable form into the reign of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the interim manager at Old Trafford.
Ex-Red Devils striker Solskjaer will be the Manchester United manager until the end of the season at least.
Eric Bailly became the first player to be sent off under the managerial regime of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his red card in the 4-1 thumping of Bournemouth at home.
Eric Bailly has been the subject of transfer interest from clubs like AS Roma, AC Milan, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
