Zidane personally requests Real make shock move for £35m Manchester United star

Zinedine Zidane has told Real Madrid he wants to bring Eric Bailly to the club this summer, according to The Sun.

Bailly is set to be offloaded at the end of the season after struggling with injuries and falling out of favour in the last year.

The Sun claim that Zidane is a big fan of Bailly and he personally requested the 24-year-old be added to the list of targets.

United are prepared to sell Bailly for £35million, with Arsenal also keen to sign the Ivory Coast international. Bailly has just 15 months left on his current deal at Old Trafford, but talks with United about a possible extension have been shelved.
