Erik ten Hag's Man Utd transfer clearout set to begin with 'decision made' to let both Eric Bailly & Axel Tuanzebe leave

MANCHESTER UNITED will sell Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils will move the defensive duo on as Erik ten Hag aims to reshape his new side's leaky defence.

Bailly, 28, penned a new four-year deal in April 2021, but hardly featured last season.

While Tuanzebe, 24, is coming off disappointing loan spells at Aston Villa and Napoli.

According to Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano, the decision has already been made for the pair to leave Old Trafford ahead of next season.

Bailly made just four Premier League appearances last term.

The Ivorian was thrown in for matches against Manchester City and Chelsea during the first half of last season – before outings in clashes with Burnley and Norwich.

He represented his country at the Africa Cup of Nations in January, and didn't make a single United appearance upon his return.

Bailly has played 113 times in total for the Red Devils, since joining from Villarreal in 2016.

Tuanzebe, meanwhile, has made 37 outings for United but spent last season out on loan.

Romano adds that Aaron Wan-Bissaka could also leave United this summer, with the Red Devils waiting for bids.
