AC Milan linked with Eric Bailly

AC Milan have been linked with a move for Manchester United Eric Bailly.

It comes as the player’s agent has indicated that the Ivory Coast international is not happy at his situation at Old Trafford because of his lack of game time, with suggestions that he may and try and force a move if he does not get more opportunities.

Bailly finds himself third choice behind Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, and he has made just 2 Premier League appearances this season, despite being back to full fitness again.

A £30 million signing from Villareal in 2016, Bailly has seen his progress in England hampered by serious injury, with ankle and knee problems causing him to miss a substantial amount of games.

In January of this year he signed a new two-year contract tying him to the club until the end of the 2021-2022 season, and United would be reluctant to sell him without having an adequate replacement lined-up, with both Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo linked with exits from the club.
