When Man Utd Will Sell 24-Year-Old Arsenal Target Revealed

Manchester United will sell defender Eric Bailly in the summer if they can get a quality centre back in according to reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.

Independent specifically revealed that the Ivorian international star is facing the risk of leaving the club after three seasons.

Manchester United have four main centre backs namely Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.

Swedish international player Lindelof is seen as the first choice name in the centre back position at Manchester United at the moment.

Chris Smalling and Phil Jones recently signed new contracts at the club.

Marcos Rojo can also play in one of the centre back positions but the Argentine international is expected to leave the club when his Manchester United contract expires this summer.

Eric Bailly has been on the radar of Premier League rivals Arsenal for the better part of the last one year with recent reports claiming that the Gunners failed with a loan bid for the 24-year-old.

The Ivorian defender was the first signing of the recently ended Jose Mourinho managerial era at Old Trafford following his £30m move from Spanish La Liga club Villareal in the summer of 2016.

Italian Serie A giants AC Milan and North London club Tottenham Hotspur also retain an interest in Eric Bailly.
