Jose Mourinho wants another Manchester United star at AS Roma

Jose Mourinho wants another Manchester United star at AS Roma

As reported by Il Tempo (via Manchester Evening News), Mourinho has identified Eric Bailly as a suitable candidate for a move to Italy as he looks to strengthen his AS Roma side.

Bailly joined Manchester United from Villarreal for a transfer fee believed to be around £30 million in the summer of 2016. Interestingly, he was the first player to be signed during Mourinho’s stint at Old Trafford.

He came with massive expectations and was one of the most highly-rated young defenders in world football at that point of time. But a number of injuries since then have meant that he has not quite managed to find his feet and establish himself in the club’s first-team. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has made 106 appearances for the Red Devils till now.

When on the pitch, Bailly has often performed well. But his injury issues have kept him out of the team very often. Now it remains to be seen what the future holds for him. It is worth pointing out though that the Ivory Coast international signed a contract extension with the club till June 2024 just a few months back.
