Eric Bailly offered to Fenerbahce

English Premier League side Manchester United has offered defender Eric Bailly to Fenerbahce.

Bailly who has consistently suffered injuries is said not to be in the plans of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and now reports from Istanbul claims that the centre-back's advisors have approached Fenerbahce offering the Ivory Coast ace on a one-year loan, says The Sun.

Bailly has just made 10 appearances this season but it is believed that the Turkish giants are seeking major defensive reinforcements after their disappointing seventh-place finish.

The Super Lig club would guarantee Bailly regular first-team football, setting him up for the final year of his United's contract in 2021 as United seek to offload him permanently once his contract is over; the player having been linked with a move to AC Milan too.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prefers the centre back partnership of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof but there has been reports that they are keen on another centre back preferably a left-footed player.

Apart from the two, the club still Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu Mensah who can all play the position.
