Man Utd news: Jose Mourinho told to reject Arsenal and Tottenham transfer interest


Bailly’s future at Manchester United has been thrown into doubt in recent weeks.

The Ivory Coast international has been in and out of the side this season.

The 24-year-old was taken off after just 19 minutes against Newcastle last Saturday, with Jose Mourinho’s team 2-0 down at Old Trafford.

After the game United legend Rio Ferdinand claimed there was no way back for Bailly after that.

“This guy, I don’t see a way back for Bailly,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

Bailly has been linked with a move to north London sides Tottenham and Arsenal.

But former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol says United must not sell the 24-year-old.

And Nicol believes Bailly is the best central defender the Red Devils have on their books.

“Does any centre-back have a future at Manchester United?” Nicol told ESPN FC.

“If they get rid of them all they won’t have any.

“I would suggest that Bailly of all the centre-backs they have is probably the best one.

“So I see absolutely no way he moves to Tottenham.

“So this is absolutely a miss.”

Bailly joined United from Villarreal for £30million in the summer of 2016.

He has made 63 appearances in all competitions, scoring just once.
