Roma and AC Milan make enquiries for Man United defender Eric Bailly

Roma and AC Milan make official enquiries for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly… with Serie A champions also in talks to sign Japhet Tanganga from Tottenham

  • Eric Bailly has struggled for game time due to injuries in the past few seasons 
  • He is now wanted at Roma, where he would join his ex-teammate Chris Smalling
  •  United are open to offers for the defender after signing Lisandro Martinez 

Manchester United’s Eric Bailly has attracted enquiries from Roma and AC Milan, who continue discussions with Tottenham over a deal for Japhet Tanganga.

Bailly has told United he wants to fight for his place after Napoli enquired earlier in the window.

However, United are open to offers as they look to offset their summer spend, including the £46m spent on defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.

They may still need to spend more this summer, with uncertainty over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future meaning United could be left short on forwards as they head into next season.

Bailly has made 113 appearances since joining Old Trafford in 2016, but has struggled to nail down a place and often been derided for his inconsistency.

He has been hampered by injuries in recent years, and failed to pass five league appearances in two of his last three seasons.

Watford have already signed Mario Gaspar from Villarreal but want Manchester United right-back Ethan Laird on loan too.
