Man Utd to sell senior defensive trio

Manchester United will seek to sell three senior defenders this summer.

The Manchester Evening News says United will part with Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Alex Tuanzebe if they receive suitable offers.

Ivory Coast international Bailly arrived in 2016 for £30m, but only made four appearances in the Premier League last season.

Jones, meanwhile, has been blighted by injuries in recent years, and only has a year remaining on his contract; Tuanzebe has spent much of the past two campaigns out on loan without success.

Meanwhile, United officials have consulted new boss Erik ten Hag about the possibility of signing Villarreal's Pau Torres.

The Spanish international has been a long-term target for the Red Devils, and was first considered during Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's time in the hot seat.

Torres could even take his No4 shirt, should Phil Jones leave the club.

The recruitment department at Old Trafford have continued to monitor Torres' situation, and now seem set to make a move – but only if Ten Hag gives the deal the green light.
