Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is determined to leave the club this summer, according to But! Football.

The centre-back has barely played over the course of the campaign with just 487 minutes of first-team football.

Bailly is obviously frustrated with his situation, and it is now reported that his agents have entered talks with clubs.

Marseille were keen on landing the Ivorian on loan in January, but United had no plans of entertaining his departure.

The French outfit will try again with a permanent offer this summer, but are set to face competition from rivals Lyon.

Aside from the Ligue 1 duo, Roma could also be in the running to sign the 28-year-old due to Jose Mourinho's presence.

Mourinho played a key role in bringing Bailly to United from Villarreal in 2016, and he is said to be eyeing a reunion.

The Portuguese tactician is currently working with former United stars Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Roma.

Aside from Bailly, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has also been linked with the Giallorossi after becoming out-of-favour at United.
