Espanyol are plotting an ambitious move for Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly, according to a report.
The Ivorian defender has not featured for the Red Devils since the start of October, which is down to a mixture of tactical reasons and injury concerns.
Bailly has been used for a total of 21 minutes in the Premier League since starting Man United's first two matches, with his most recent appearance seeing him hauled off at half time with his side 2-0 down against Newcastle United.
Catalan newspaper Sport suggests that the 24-year-old may now be offered an escape route by Espanyol, where he started his professional career four years ago.
Bailly is one of a number of injury doubts for United's Premier League meeting with Arsenal on Wednesday night.
