Bailly keen on loan exit
Football Transfer Centre

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly will push for a potential move away during the ongoing transfer window.

The centre-back is currently out on international duty, but he is still keen on pursuing a temporary move elsewhere.

He has been the club's fourth-choice central defender this term, and his fortunes are unlikely to improve soon.

In recent weeks, Phil Jones has also returned to full fitness, and ESPN claims that Bailly is keen to move on this month.

It is unlikely that any permanent offers will be on the table, but Bailly remains optimistic of securing a short-term loan exit.

AC Milan were hot on the trail for his signature earlier this month, and they could push for his services before the transfer deadline.

The Rossoneri are keen on landing an experienced centre-back to aid their title push after a long-term injury for Simon Kjaer.

They may look to land Bailly on loan with an option to buy in the summer.
