Jose Mourinho keen on taking one of his Manchester United signings to Roma this summer

Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is pushing for a reunion with his first Red Devil signing Eric Bailly this summer, with European Champions Roma keen to strengthen their central defence this summer.

Bailly is thought to be one of those free to depart this summer following Erik ten Hag’s takeover of the Old Trafford reins, with the Ivorian seeing his game time limited last season and only set to see that compounded by the arrival of Lisandro Martinez from Ajax, who seems to be nailed on to start at left centre-back.

This would leave Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire to fight it out for the other spot in central defence, even before Bailly comes into the conversation.

And, as per Sky Sports, ‘Bailly will speak to Erik ten Hag about game time’ this season, which could open the door for a departure as Roma stand waiting to pounce.

Bailly was Mourinho’s first signing as Manchester United boss, joining from Villareal in a deal worth £34m, but could be set to depart for less than £10m this summer having fallen out of favour.

More to come from Manchester United

Manchester United are far from finished in the transfer window this summer, with at least one midfielder, a forward and potentially a right-back still to be added to the starting XI this summer.

A deal for Frenkie de Jong has been in the pipeline for much of the summer, but has not yet been finalised, while the Red Devils are also tracking Ajax forward Antony ahead of a prospective deal before the end of the window.

Much, however, depends on the Cristiano Ronaldo saga and how that unfolds in the coming days.
