Man Utd draw up loan plan for Bailly

Manchester United are willing to make Eric Bailly available this summer.

The Sun says United are considering allowing Bailly to leave on loan next season – with Valencia showing interest.

The Ivory Coast defender has been plagued with injuries throughout his Old Trafford career, including long-term knee problems.

The 26-year-old is a popular member of the Red Devils squad, and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge fan of his talents.

But Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof are his preferred partnership, and there's interest in bringing in another centre-back.

It is understood United want him to get some regular action, and that could mean him leaving on loan for first-team opportunities.

United triggered their two-year contract extension option back in January to stop him walking away on a free transfer this summer.
