Manchester United transfer news: Eric Bailly ‘ready to leave with Arsenal and Tottenham eyeing defender’

Eric Bailly could be on his way out of Manchester United in January.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Ivory Coast defender is ready to push for a move when the transfer window opens and is being eyed by Arsenal and Tottenham.

Eric Bailly had a game to forget against Brighton in August

Bailly was a £30million signing for United from Villarreal in 2016 and made a bright start to his career at Old Trafford.

But he has struggled for fitness and form over the past 12 months.

Bailly started the first two games of this season but endured a nightmare display in the 3-2 defeat to Brighton in August.

He was subsequently dropped by boss Jose Mourinho and has been on the bench for the past two Premier League games.

Now the Mirror claims the 24-year-old is considering his future at the club.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is reported to be a big admirer of the centre-back.

Arsenal counterpart Unai Emery is also said to be watching developments with Bailly closely.
