Man Utd defender Eric Bailly says he is 'done' in photo outside training centre

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has posted a photo on social media captioned 'done' outside the club's training ground.

There has been major speculation over the Ivory Coast centre-back's future, having not reported back for the beginning of pre-season training (as per Manchester Evening News).

On Friday, football correspondent Marc Mechenoua claimed that Bailly was in talks with Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, potentially following in the footsteps of former United team-mates Alex Telles and Cristiano Ronaldo in making the move to the club.

Bailly spent last season at Ligue 1 side Marseille on loan, but the club elected not to trigger an option in his contract to sign him on a permanent basis.

Having not been named in United's travelling squad for their pre-season tour of the United States, his days at the club look to be all but numbered.

And Bailly's most recent Instagram story appears to add substance to that view.

In the post, the 29-year-old centre-back is pictured outside what appears to the front entrance to United's Carrington training ground.

Bailly is smiling while holding up a peace symbol with one hand, and is carrying a black holdall.

The post is captioned: 'Done', with a green tick next to it.

Whether the post relates to the end of his time at United, or an impending transfer to the Saudi Pro League, remains unclear at this stage.

His contract expires next summer, meaning one option for Erik ten Hag's side could be to mutually terminate his deal and allow him to join another club.

As well as Saudi Pro League clubs, the Daily Mirror claim that Fulham are interested in signing the defender, with manager Marco Silva keen to add reinforcements to his squad ahead of the start of the new Premier League season next month.

United currently have five other senior centre-backs on their books, with Jonny Evans having signed on a short-term deal earlier in July.

Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire are Ten Hag's other options to choose from.
