‘Fake News’ scream a number of Man Utd fans after latest claim star could leave Old Trafford in January

We covered reports on Monday morning suggesting that Eric Bailly could quit Manchester United with both Arsenal and Tottenham ready to move if he leaves in January.

As noted by John Cross for The Mirror, it was claimed that after dropping out of Jose Mourinho’s side in the last three games, only featuring late on as a substitute in the previous two games, the centre-half could seek an exit in January with United’s Premier League rivals potentially set to swoop.

Despite having his struggles at Old Trafford since joining the club from Villarreal in 2016 as Mourinho’s first signing as United manager, the 24-year-old is continuing to learn the trade of defending and gaining valuable experience in the process.

Bailly has made 60 appearances for the club in two and a bit seasons and many fans believe he is our best centre-half, though Mourinho has overlooked the Ivory Coast international in recent weeks with Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof jumping up the pecking order.

Time will tell if he truly wants to leave Old Trafford, but there’s a number of fans not buying recent reports.
