Paris Saint-Germain join race for Manchester United centre-back

Eric Bailly news

PSG look into Bailly move

French champions Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly joined the pursuit to sign Eric Bailly from Manchester United this winter.

The Ivory Coast international made an impressive start to his United career after joining them from Villareal in 2016 but he has since dropped down the pecking order with injury and form concerns.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have both been linked with the defender's services of late but according to The Mail, Les Parisiens have thrown their name into the hat for the player's signature.

Paris Saint-Germain presently have three regular central defenders in Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe but the former's future remains under question with his contract expiring at the end of next season.

The Brazilian footballer has already been linked with a potential return to AC Milan and a move could possible come into fruition at the end of the ongoing campaign.

Meanwhile, Bailly have managed just three Premier League start for United this term and he has not earned a single minute of gametime for the club over the past 45 days.
