Manchester United star Eric Bailly’s future is up in the air and if reports in the media are anything to go by then he is looking to leave the Red Devils in the winter transfer window.
According to The Mirror, the Ivorian international is ready to quit Manchester United in January after losing his place in the starting XI.
Mirror Sport have stated that Arsenal could move to sign the African center half, who joined the Red Devils back in 2016.
The north Londoners were shaky at the back in the last campaign and conceded 51 goals in the Premier League. In the summer transfer window, they opted to sign Sokratis from Dortmund but the back line has not improved.
So far, in 5 PL games, the Gunners have already conceded 9 goals. Emery is clearly missing star defender and captain Koscielny, who is out with a long term injury. So signing, a new defender makes sense.
As far as United is concerned, they do have a lot of depth in the central defense but quality is lacking, therefore, they must hold on to Bailly, who is arguably their best central defender.
The ex Yellow Submarine player’s current deal with the club will expire in less than 2 years and at the moment, he is earning £75,000-a-week (The Express).
