Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Eric Bailly update

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano drops Eric Bailly update -Manchester United News

Manchester United are ‘prepared’ to sell centre-back Eric Bailly this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Wan-Bissaka update

It looks set to be a busy few months at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag, who has already made a head start on the United job by recently terminating his Ajax deal.

A number of players are out of contract at the end of June, while others, like Aaron Wan-Bissaka, aren’t in the new manager’s plans.

Sky Sports revealed that United will listen to offers for the right-back as a result of Ten Hag’s decision, with a return to Crystal Palace rumoured earlier this month.

The Latest: Romano’s claim

Romano took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to provide updates on both Wan-Bissaka and Bailly.

He revealed that United are ‘prepared’ to let the defenders leave this summer but said it ‘depends on the proposals’.

The Verdict: Right call?

Bailly, who Gary Neville labelled as ‘really poor’ back in 2018, has made just seven appearances this season. His form since 2018 has dipped massively, with his Transfermarkt valuation dropping from £31.5m to just £7.2m.

The Ivory Coast international will be entering the final two years of his deal in the summer, and with his lack of game time this season, it does seem to make sense to part ways.

Ten Hag has been linked with a number of centre-backs since taking the United job, including Jurrien Timber, Sven Botman, Kalidou Koulibaly, Goncalo Inacio and Alessandro Bastoni, which may show what he thinks of Bailly and others already at the club.
