Man Utd 27-year-old defender emerged as surprise transfer target for Real Betis

Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly has reportedly emerged as a surprise transfer target for La Liga outfits, Real Betis.

Owing to a combination of injury and being regarded as third choice by the Red Devils head-coach, Ole Gunnar Solskajer, former Villarreal defender has been restricted to 15 games in all competitions this season.

The latter has allegedly resulted in the 27-year-old contemplating his future with the 20-times English champions, with less than 15 months left on his current deal.

According to The Sun, La Liga outfits, Real Betis are keen to hand the Ivory Coast international a return to the Spanish top-tier, where he has previously played for Villarreal.

Real Betis currently sit in sixth position in La Liga putting them in contention to qualify for next season’s Europa League.

Meanwhile, Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly still interested in securing the services of Rennes midfield star Eduardo Camavinga in the summer.

The France international’s name dominated the transfer rumours last year on the back of an stunning breakthrough season in the French top-tier.

Camavinga was also touted as a target for PSG and Real Madrid, however, a move ultimately failed to materialise and he stays a Rennes player.

However, Spanish outlet AS claims that there could be multiple offers for the 18-year-old midfielder at the end of the current campaign.
