Goodbye Bailly: Arsene Wenger set to make Man United star first signing for AC Milan

Manchester United centre-half Eric Bailly is a reported winter transfer target for Serie A giant AC Milan amid speculations they’re close to naming former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as their new head coach.

ESPN link the defender with the San Siro giant as he’s worried about his current situation at Manchester United, with the Red Devils head coach Jose Mourinho surely seeming to lose faith in the African in recent times.

The Ivory Coast international defender could, however, be a good acquisition for most top sides after initially displaying a lot of promise in a Manchester United jersey, despite some tough times with injury setbacks.

ESPN suggest AC Milan are working round the clock on a transfer deal by trying to get a right deal of Manchester United’s asking price of the player, and it could be that the defender will make his way to Milan this January alongside new tactician Arsene Wenger.

France Football heavily connected the Frenchman with replacing club legend and former Italy international midfielder Gennaro Gattuso as AC Milan boss, in what would without doubt be an brilliant move after his 22 years managerial reign at the Emirate Stadium.

The Manchester United defender seems like a good player to get French tactician Arsene Wenger off to a brilliant start in the Serie A as the Rossoneri club could do with some top quality acquisition to help them strengthen at the back.

Argentina defender Marcos Rojo, who extended his Manchester United deal until 2021 back in March, is also possibly to be made available for offload or loan in the New Year after failing to play a single match so far this term.
