According to Italian media outlet Calciomercato, Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has been linked with a move to Serie A side AC Milan.

The Ivorian who is currently fourth-choice centre-back at Old Trafford is attracting interest from AC Milan who are reportedly ready to make a move for him at the end of the season.

The Italian side see Bailly as an ideal replacement for club captain Alessio Romagnoli who is likely to leave the San Siro at the end of the season.

Bailly will likely be allowed to leave the club because of his injury record and also his sale could bolster the Red Devils transfer kitty.
