Eric Bailly fears that his Manchester United future could be cast into doubt if the Red Devils end up signing Harry Maguire this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Metro is reporting that Bailly is concerned that he could be the “victim” of Maguire’s proposed transfer to Old Trafford from Leicester City.

According to the same story, Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is focused on completing a deal for Maguire and at least one midfielder before the transfer window closes next month.

The same article says that the Red Devils have been “frustrated” by Leicester City’s £80m valuation of Maguire but they remain “confident” that they can get a deal over the line.

Maguire’s proposed arrival would leave Manchester United with seven centre-halves heading into the new campaign, and according to the same story, Bailly is concerned that he could lose his spot in the team.

Manchester United have only made two signings so far this summer after having wrapped up deals for Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

The Red Devils are aiming to strengthen their squad before they kick off their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Chelsea FC on 11 August.
