Manchester United are willing to sell Eric Bailly to Arsenal as long as the Red Devils recoup their initial £30m investment back, according to a report in England.

Metro is reporting that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to offload Bailly following the Ivory Coast international’s persistent injury problems.

The same article states that Arsenal are ready to launch a bid for the African defender as Unai Emery looks to sign a long-term replacement for Laurent Koscielny.

According to the same story, Solskjaer is willing to sell Bailly to a Premier League rival, even though the Manchester United boss would rather send the 25-year-old abroad.

However, the Metro report goes on to emphasise that Manchester United want to recoup their £30m investment in Bailly if they’re going to sell Bailly in the summer transfer window.

Bailly has struggled with persistent injury problems since Solskjaer’s predecessor Jose Mourinho signed the Ivorian defender in a £30m deal back in 2016.

The former Villarreal defender won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first season at Old Trafford but Bailly has been out of favour in the last two campaigns.

Manchester United will take on Cardiff City at Old Trafford in their final Premier League fixture of the season.
