Player Who Earned £31.2m at Old Trafford to Be Sold by Man United

Manchester United could be in for a summer clear-out, with defender Eric Bailly reportedly set to be put on the market. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Marseille will not be making the 29-year-old’s loan move permanent, and he will return to Old Trafford. However, it appears that the Red Devils are willing to let him go, with Bailly’s Transfermarkt valuation dropping significantly, indicating that he may be past his prime.

Bailly isn’t the only defender potentially leaving the club, with reports suggesting that ten Hag is open to Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof departing too, leaving United in need of a new centre-back option. One player that has been linked with the club is AS Monaco’s Axel Disasi, with reports suggesting that United are in pole position ahead of Chelsea and Manchester City in the race to sign him.

If United do bring in a new defender, it could signal the end of an era for long-serving players like Bailly, Maguire and Lindelof, who may be moving on this summer. It remains to be seen whether United will be able to find a suitable replacement for the trio, but one thing is for certain: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to make some tough decisions in the coming weeks if he wants to rebuild his backline.
