Bailly eyeing summer Man Utd exit

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly will push for a fresh challenge away from the club this summer.

The centre-back has played under 500 minutes of first-team football this term. He has grown frustrated over his situation.

Ahead of the summer, he is already assessing his options. There are a number of Serie A clubs interested in his services.

Marseille are also in the mix, and journalist Fabrice Hawkins claims they tried to sign him on a temporary deal in January.

United were adamant that Bailly was not leaving midway through the campaign, and their stance should change.

The hierarchy are already looking at the prospect of signing Villarreal's Pau Torres, who could cost around £50 million.

They may want to recoup some of the funds, and Bailly appears the likely candidate to head for the exit door this summer.

He was signed from Villarreal for £30m in 2016, but the club are unlikely to recoup that fee amid his injuries and limited game time.
