Premier League side Fulham are interested in signing Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly, according to 90min.

The report adds that Fulham have contacted Manchester United to make enquiry about signing Eric Bailly this summer.

The two clubs are already in talks over midfielder Andreas Pereira, who has returned from his loan with Flamengo and is now high on Fulham boss Marco Silva’s wish list.

Fulham reportedly enquired about signing Bailly during talks with Manchester United for Pereira.

Bailly has been made available for sale this summer by Manchester United after making just four Premier League appearances last season.

Bailly has two years left on his Manchester United contract with the Red Devils having the option to extend for another year but the club are keen on selling the Ivory Coast centre-back this summer.

90min also adds that Fulham would prefer a loan deal for Bailly and talks are underway to try and find an agreement that suits both clubs.

Bailly has struggled with injuries since joining Manchester United from Villarreal in 2016.

The 28 year old has made just 113 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United in six years at the club.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag have reportedly told Bailly he can leave the club this summer. Ten Hag is keen on signing a centre-back this summer, with the Dutch tactician eyeing a move for Ajax centre-back Lisandro Martinez.
