AC Milan could be about to sign Manchester United defender Eric Bailly after the Red Devils have made ‘positive’ signs during talks with the Serie A side.
Man United extended Bailly’s contract last year in order to banish interest in the Ivory Coast defender.
Despite renewing his deal with the Red Devils, the former Villarreal defender struggled to get back into the starting XI under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 27-year-old is also experiencing the same treatment from United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick, despite the likes of Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof struggling with fitness issues.
The journalist holds that Milan are making their final evaluations after Man United made positive signs during the last few hours.
And Ralf Rangnick is expected not to stand in the defender’s way, given he has a good numbers of options at the back.
Bailly, after he extended his contract, warned Manchester United that if his playing time doesn’t get better, he would force his way out of the club.
‘I just say that I want to stay in case I get the chance to play. I don’t want to be a starter one game and a substitute for another five.
‘If that happens I will have to look for another solution.
‘The new contract is fine but if I don’t play I will be open to listen to other proposals.’
Eric Bailly started against Burnley and helped Manchester United beat the Clarets 3-1 before he joined up with the Ivory Coast national team for the ongoing AFCON.
