Manchester United defender facing summer exit concerns?

Eric Bailly news

Bailly's United future in doubt

Eric Bailly's future with Manchester United is reportedly under question with the Red Devils planning to pursue a new centre-back during the summer.

Bailly has struggled with form and fitness concerns over the past two-and-a-half seasons with club and this has seen him in-and-out of the starting XI in the same period.

According to The Independent, Bailly is said to split opinion among the members of the United staff with a few doubting whether he has the credentials to succeed at the highest level.

It is added that the likes of Milan Skriniar and Kalidou Koulibaly have been highlighted as probable targets to strengthen the backline in the process and the arrival of either may spell the end of Bailly's career at Old Trafford.

Bailly started the previous FA Cup fourth round tie against Arsenal on the road and he is expected to do the same when United make the trip to west London to face Chelsea in the fifth round tomorrow.
