Eric Bailly ‘could leave Manchester United in January with Arsenal and Tottenham leading the chase’

Eric Bailly ‘could leave Manchester United as soon as January with both Arsenal and Tottenham potentially poised to move for the defender.’

The 24-year-old Ivorian started United’s first two matches of the Premier League season against Leicester City and Brighton but was subsequently dropped by Jose Mourinho.

Bailly joined United for £30million in 2016 but Mourinho has never fully trusted the centre-half and he appeared to blame him for the 3-2 loss at the Amex Stadium.

Now, according to the Daily Mirror, Bailly could be sold in the January window with the north London clubs leading the pursuit.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is known to be an admirer from Bailly’s time with former club Villarreal. Arsenal could also move to strengthen their back line.
