The media reported that Monaco had approached Bailly from Manchester United on a loan deal. with purchase conditions After becoming the last choice of Eric Ten Hag, the Red Devils coach.

Manchester United have signed a new centre-back, Lisandro Martinez, in addition to Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Victor Linde. Alif is already in the ufabet team.

Monaco’s efforts may not be easy as the Red Devils are more keen to sell Bailly, while the 28-year-old’s current contract, who joined from Villarreal in 2016, runs until 2024. 

Bailly’s current contract expires in 2024 and the club have an option for a further 12 months.

The only likely scenario in which that option would be activated would be to prevent Bailly becoming a free agent. In that scenario, he would obviously leave for free.

But if United get their way, the centre-half will be sold long before then.
