Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is currently speaking with two Saudi Arabian clubs over a summer transfer.

The Ivory Coast international has been deemed surplus to requirements by United, and he is free to speak with interested teams.

Al Nassr have already made contact with him, and Dharmesh Sheth claims that another Saudi side have also entered the race.

Bailly is currently discussing contract terms with the duo. He could reportedly earn around £128,000-a-week at either of those teams.

The 29-year-old has been in contact with former United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo regarding the league and the lifestyle in Saudi.

Ronaldo was recently joined by Alex Telles at Al Nassr. There could be another reunion if Bailly were to sign for the Riyadh club.

Bailly spent last season on loan with Marseille in Ligue 1. He made only 23 appearances for them due to a lengthy ban and injuries.

He has not returned to training at Carrington so far. It is widely expected that he will be sold by United by the end of the month.
