Manchester United’s Ivorian centre-half Eric Bailly has appeared as an option for Marco Giampaolo’s AC Milan.

The Rossoneri board have been scouring the transfer market for possible additions in central defence, with Liverpool star Dejan Lovren a centre-back they have explored signing.

Dejan is still a possible capture for the Italians, though the Croatian would have to accept a pay cut to move to Serie A, but he is far from the only defender under consideration at the San Siro.

Manchester United’s Bailly is also in Rossoneri’s thoughts as a potential reinforcement, according to and Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport, quoted by Tutto Mercato.

The Red Devils are working to sign England international Harry Maguire from Leicester City and it’s unclear if they would allow Eric to leave.

He was snapped up by the Premier League heavyweights from Spanish side Villarreal back in 2016, costing the club a sum of £30 million to take to Old Trafford.

He is entering the final 12 months of his contract at Manchester United, though the Red Devils can extend it by a further two years.

The central defender made a total of 18 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United last campaign.

Meantime, Sean Longstaff is ready to turn his back on a move to the EPL giants Manchester United in order to stay with his club, Newcastle United in this summer’s transfer market, According to Sky Sports News.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are understood to be keen on a summer deal for the 21-year-old ace, who made eight EPL appearances last campaign before picking up a season-ending injury.
