According to ESPN, Manchester United is hoping to get rid of Eric Bailly and Donny van de Beek during the extended transfer windows in Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
This summer, the Red Devils lost 13 players to departures. This includes Mason Greenwood, Alvaro Fernandez, and Brandon Williams, who all left on loan agreements.
Given that the summer transfer windows in Saudi Arabia (September 7) and Turkey (September 15) are still open, it would suggest that there could be additional departures in the coming days.
Currently out of favor, Bailly and Van de Beek are likely to depart the team.
The Man Utd duo must soon move on.
After refusing to play as a backup in the team last summer, Bailly was declared surplus to requirements. He was on loan to Marseille during the previous season.
The French team was under a contractual obligation to purchase him, but the center-back failed to participate in enough games to fulfill that requirement.
Now that his contract is set to expire the following summer, United are willing to let him go. Although Bailly has been associated with Besiktas, his salary may prove to be a barrier.
The Turkish team wants to sign him for free, but Bailly might want payment before leaving United.
Van van Beek, however, recently turned down a season-long loan to Lorient. Despite their agreement with United, the Dutchman did not want to join them.
Galatasaray and the Red Devils are still negotiating a loan agreement for him. On the day before the deadline, a $1 million opening offer was turned down, but he might still go.
