Manchester United ready to sell 25-year-old star to Arsenal?

Eric Bailly news

Bailly on Arsenal radar

Manchester United are reportedly prepared to sanction the sale of Eric Bailly to Arsenal, should the Gunners be willing to match their £30m asking price.

The Ivory Coast international is currently at the completion of his third campaign with the Red Devils but he has restricted to gametime due to form and fitness concerns over the course of the season.

Despite this, Unai Emery's side are said to hold an interest in the former Villareal man and Metro claims that they could get their hands on his services for around £30m this summer.

Still, the north London giants are unlikely to sanction the deal at the earliest opportunity and they need to part ways with one of their existing players prior to finalising a move for the defender.

Shkodran Mustafi has been the player regularly linked with a summer exit from the Emirates Stadium and his departure should allow the club garner sufficient funds to sign Bailly.
