Fed-up Man Utd star Eric Bailly offered transfer lifeline with clubs in Spain and Italy keen on out-of-favour defender


FED-UP Eric Bailly has been offered transfer lifelines from Spain and Italy, according to reports.

As revealed by SunSport, the Manchester United defender is growing increasingly frustrated due to a lack of minutes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

The Ivorian, 27, plans set to snub a 12-month contract extension.

But according to ESPN, clubs from LaLiga and Serie A are considering offering him the chance to resurrect his career on the continent.

Bailly’s current deal expires in 2022 so the chance to offload the 37-cap international this summer for a fee rather than for nothing next year could be appealing for United.

Tranfermarkt currently value him at £13.5m.

Bailly arrived at Old Trafford from Spain having been picked up by the Espanyol academy then joining Villarreal a year before Jose Mourinho made him his first signing as boss.

The club spent £30million on the defender five years ago.

But he still has just 100 appearances for the Red Devils with much of his time in England disrupted by injuries.

This season, the defender has played 15 out of 50 matches as Solskjaer has tended to partner Harry Maguire with Victor Lindelof.

Bailly most recently featured in the 1-1 draw with AC Milan before contracting coronavirus while away on international duty.

The injury-prone ace could return to the side on Thursday when United host Granada in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.
