OFFICIAL: Man United defender Bailly joins Marseille on loan for the season


Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has joined Ligue 1 side Marseille on a season-long loan after falling out of favour with new boss Erik ten Hag.

Bailly will now link up with Igor Tudor’s side, who have a £5m option to purchase the Ivory Coast defender if they qualify for the Champions League and if the player makes a certain amount of appearances.

Manchester United said in a statement: ‘Eric Bailly has joined French side Marseille on loan for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.

‘Bailly’s move to the south of France includes the possibility of a permanent transfer at the end of the season.

‘A popular member of the United squad, Eric has our best wishes for the campaign to come and we will be following his progress closely.’
