The Ivorian hasn’t seen much playing time for United this season with only four starts to his name. His last game for the club was the 3-2 win over Newcastle United which came over a month ago.
The defender could be a quality addition to the side but Mauricio Pochettino has to work with Bailly to get the best out of him.
It has been a sapping time for the 24-year-old at United and the report adds that Spurs were tipped to sign the player having not signed anyone in the summer window.
The report adds that the United chiefs are set to meet to discuss the Ivorian’s situation. It will be interesting to see if United are willing to let go of the player, especially to a Premier League rival.
Tottenham are five points behind Manchester City after 12 games and face Chelsea one we return to Premier League action in a week’s time.
Pochettino has done a great job with the same set of players from last season, but we need to add some fresh faces to develop the team.
