Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly open to selling defender Eric Bailly during the summer transfer window.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly grown frustrated with Eric Bailly and may consider selling the defender.

Bailly has spent the last two seasons at Old Trafford, but the Ivorian has been limited to 56 appearances in all competitions due to a couple of lengthy injuries.

However, despite the 24-year-old being fit for the closing weeks of the campaign, Mourinho opted to keep the former Villarreal man in reserve and is said to be unhappy with the player being unavailable at certain stages of the past two years.

According to The Independent, it has resulted in Mourinho not ruling out a sale during the summer transfer window, with United in a position where they could receive a large fee for the centre-back.

Bailly currently has just over two years remaining on his contract and as it stands, it appears unlikely that an extension will be provided in the coming months.

United have been linked with an approach for Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld, who could potentially act as a replacement.
