Hello and welcome to the daily Manchester United transfer round-up - your one-stop shop for all the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours!
We have already entered the transfer season and as it always happens, agents scurrying around to strike deals will be a common sight for the next few days.
Manchester United had a number of players on their radar prior to the opening of the transfer window. Now that the window is reopened, the Red Devils will look to bolster their squad by signing appropriate players.
They are in need of a world-class defender and it remains to be seen if Ed Woodward succeeds in delivering the required goods.
Without further ado, let's have a look a look at the top stories concerning Manchester United for today.
#3 Eric Bailly could leave Manchester United
If reports from Spain are to be believed, Eric Bailly could quit Manchester United this month. He joined the Red Devils in 2016 for a fee of £30m from Villareal and has 18 months left on his current contract.
The Ivorian has failed to cement a place in the starting XI this season and might leave the club in search of more playing time.
Bailly featured rarely under Jose Mourinho and has made only 1 appearance in 4 games under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer this season.
Sevilla are interested in offering the 24-year-old a way out of the club, but it remains to be seen whether Manchester United agree to part ways with him this month. Also, the player's salary demands could prove to be a stumbling block in any of Sevilla's endeavours to sign him.
