Manchester United defender Eric Bailly ‘lined up by two Premier League clubs’
Chelsea and Arsenal are both keeping tabs on Eric Bailly’s situation at Manchester United.
Mirror Sport reported earlier this week that Bailly was worried about his Old Trafford future after being frozen out by Jose Mourinho.
The United boss attempted to explain the situation on Thursday and suggested Bailly isn’t involved…because he isn’t going to the World Cup.
But ESPN reports two of United’s Premier League rivals are waiting in the wings in case Bailly is let go.
He cost United £30m two years ago and any interested parties would have to likely pay more.
Lukaku winning race for be fit for FA Cup final
Romelu Lukaku is on course to be fit for the FA Cup final, according to Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.
Lukaku suffered a foot injury in United’s 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday and is out of tomorrow’s trip to Brighton.
But Mourinho said he was positive Lukaku, United’s top scorer with 27 goals this season, will recover for the final against Chelsea on May 19.
"I hope so," said Mourinho. "It looks positive.
Mourinho also claimed Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind remain part of his plans, despite the pair having just six Premier League starts between them this season.
"I think when a player wants to go – if that’s the case – and when the right offers arrive in the club, we study that because we always try to have the players happy," said Mourinho.
Mourinho on Fellaini’s situation
Jose Mourinho admits it is up to Marouane Fellaini if he stays at Manchester United.
The midfielder, who scored the winner in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Arsenal, is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to accept the club’s offer of an extended deal.
However, Mourinho has not given up hope of keeping him at Old Trafford.
He said: "I’m still positive. He’s important, he’s a player that I like.
"He has a different position in relation to other players with contracts, because we can control other players’ destiny in another way.
"In Marouane’s case, the destiny is in his hands. He knows I want him to stay, the club wants him to stay.
"He has an offer from us and it’s up to him to say ‘yes’ or ‘no. I’m still positive as he likes to be here, he likes the feeling of the manager trusting him and I think there is a good chance for him to stay, but if he leaves, so be it."
