The 28-year-old central defender from Ivory Coast is no longer needed by Manchester United. The Red Devils have said that they don’t mind if Bailly leaves the team before his current contract ends in two years. In the season before, he only played in seven games for a total of 487 minutes, with six of them being starts.

Longoria is currently talking with Eric Bailly’s team about buying him

The local sports paper says that Pablo Longoria has already started to fight for his signing. If the CEO of Olympique de Marseille had done that, Eric Bailly’s team would have been preparing to sell the player. The path that led to United’s defender had been talked about earlier in the winter.

Later, the club from Marseille tried to get Alvaro Gonzalez back. But because the Spanish defender stayed on the dock, the Provencal club did not dig this track in the Premier League. The defender from Ivory Coast won’t be staying with the Red Devils. Even more so considering that they actively looked for people to fill this position. Lisandro Martinez came to Manchester this summer to help improve the back line.

Manchester United has no choice but to wait and hope that Bailly’s move goes smoothly. OM would only hire him if they could get a loan with an option to buy. It has been brought to the publication’s attention that the defender doesn’t mind the idea of leaving United. AS Monaco and Marseille could both be interested in the Bingerville native. After getting more experience in Spain and the UK, it is not clear if he will play his first game in Ligue 1 this year.
