Newcastle offered the chance to sign Premier League defender on a cut-price deal – Report

As reported by The Mirror, Newcastle have been offered the chance to sign Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.

The Red Devils are looking to offload the centre-back who has made just 20 league appearances in his last three seasons with injuries plaguing his career so far – a big red flag as far as I’m concerned.

Bailly is believed to earn £80,000-per-week and still has two years remaining on his contract, but is clearly not in the plans of new boss Erik ten Hag who will look to sell him as part of his overhaul of the squad. 

Back in 2016, Mourinho had signed the Ivory Coast international from Villarreal for around £30million, however The Mirror now report that they’d be willing to sell for just £8.5m this summer.

Due to his worrying injury record, if we were to target the 28-year-old, it would hopefully be in addition to the signing of another top class defender who can be the more reliable option that we can depend on to be fit for the majority of the season.

  1. Another lazy Sunday journalists article. Why would we want Manure’s cast offs when we’re competing with them for better players. If they’re going to link us with players at least put some effort in and look at hungry, young up and coming players who fit our profile. These journalists who put out stories with no substance really boil my pi$$🤬
