Red Devils could reportedly be looking to offload Eric Bailly as it’s suggested that he has been offered to Fenerbahce. Ivory Coast international was sidelined for much of last campaign due to a knee injury as he was limited to only 10 matches.
With Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof establishing themselves as the first-choice pairing for the Norwegian coach, it’s questionable as to whether or not Eric will force his way back into the starting line-up. The Red Devils will look to compete on multiple fronts again next campaign as they also prepare for their return to the UCL.
Naturally, as we saw with Alexis Sanchez, there is a danger that a loan exit could lead to a permanent one eventually too, but time will tell if Bailly signs off on a move to Super Lig, or anywhere else for that matter, or if he digs in and remains at Theatre of Dreams to try and prove his worth.
That is surely something that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to take into consideration when making decisions in the transfer market this summer, as he won’t want to leave himself short in certain areas with a decision still perhaps needed on Chris Smalling after his successful loan stint with the Giallorossi this past campaign.
The Norwegian manager stays keen to add a genuine winger to his squad, despite the stellar campaigns Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford have enjoyed. The likes of Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman and Juve’s Douglas Costa are also said to be on Red Devils radar.
