Serie A giants AC Milan are interested in signing Manchester United defender Eric Bailly on loan this month.

The centre-back has been a bit-part player this term with Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof favoured ahead of him.

Phil Jones also made his comeback lately, and Sky Italy claims that he could be offered an escape route by the Rossoneri this month.

The Milan giants will be without Simon Kjaer for the season through injury, and they are keen on signing Bailly on an initial loan.

The club signed Fikayo Tomori on loan with a buy option last winter, and they are likely to propose a similar deal for the Ivorian.

Bailly is presently with his national team for the African Cup of Nations, and he may not return until February if Ivory Coast reach the last eight.

It is unclear whether the Red Devils will entertain his departure, considering the injuries and coronavirus cases within the squad lately.
