Di Canio warns AC Milan: Man Utd defender Bailly not as good as Tomori

Lazio great Paolo di Canio has warned AC Milan about their move for Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.

Milan are in advanced talks to sign Bailly on-loan as cover for Fikayo Tomori, who has just undergone knee surgery.

Former West Ham captain Di Canio told Sky Italia: “Anyone who arrives in Italy is superior because he comes from a higher league.

"But he had physical problems. And he's not a Tomori: as a kind of player, he'd be that defender there. But sometimes he falls asleep, he takes risks: he's not so ferocious at a competitive level.

"He can do well, but he's not a Tomori who came with the desire to explode."
