MANCHESTER UNITED defender Eric Bailly is closing in on a move to Besiktas, according to reports.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

Erik ten Hag has been eager to cash-in on him following his failed loan spell with Marseille.

And according to Fabrizio Romano, the defender could be set to leave sooner rather than later.

Bailly has agreed personal terms with Besiktas ahead of a proposed transfer.

The Turkish giants are now set to hold talks with Man Utd as they look to agree a transfer fee.

Former Liverpool and Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also expected to join Besiktas this summer.

Bailly joined the Red Devils in a £30million transfer from Villarreal in 2016.

He has since made 113 appearances for the club.

Bailly spent this season on loan at Marseille, but he was limited to just 23 appearances across all competitions.

The Ligue 1 side had no intention of triggering his £6m option to buy, so the Red Devils reportedly put the defender on the market for even less.

Man Utd are now said to be willing to sell the Ivory Coast international for just £2m.

Ten Hag has already introduced three new additions to his first team squad this summer.

Mason Mount was first to join the club after he made a £60m switch from Chelsea last month.

Andre Onana followed after completing a £47m transfer from Inter Milan.

And Rasmus Hojlund became the latest addition to Ten Hag’s squad when he joined in a £72m move last week.

However, there are now some concerns surrounding his fitness after it emerged that a hidden back injury will keep him sidelined for the first few weeks of the Premier League season.
