Sevilla consider Manchester United defender Eric Bailly

Sevilla are considering a January approach for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly, according to local media outlet Estadio Deportivo.

The Seville-based newspaper claims the Ivorian central defender is ‘on the table’ for the Andalusian club, as they look to bolster the heart of their back four.

The 24-year-old was sent off in United’s recent 4-1 win over Bournemouth and has been in and out of the team under previous boss Jose Mourinho.

It is unclear if he will become a first-team regular under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the Andalusian newspaper believes a loan deal may be a possibility.

Bailly’s current contract at Old Trafford runs through until June 2020, having arrived from Villarreal in the summer of 2016.
