Man United outcast Bailly is also rumoured to be a potential target, with journalist Duncan Castles telling the Transfer Window Podcast: "One of the individuals they're in discussion about, although as I understand it no offer has been made at this point, is Manchester United player Eric Bailly.
"He's someone who Conte likes and was looking at as a possible recruit at Inter. He is obviously one of the players who got the roughest handling from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, extremely unhappy with the way he was treated by Solskjaer, felt that it was ridiculous that Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were continually selected ahead of him, almost regardless of what they did on the pitch.
"It's not as straightforward now because Solskjaer's gone. Bailly is not pushing for a move away, he wants to prove himself at Manchester United, he looks at the players there and believes he is better than at least two of the regular starting centre-backs and now will see if he can get the opportunity under a new coach."
The former Villarreal man has played just 45 minutes of Premier League football this term and is not due to become a free agent until 2024. body check tags ::
