Latest Football News From Manchester: Jose Mourinho ‘interested’ in Manchester United outcast and other transfer rumours

Bailly has been out of the picture at Old Trafford for some time and Erik ten Hag has made the decision to transfer list the Ivorian. According to The Athletic, Mourinho would be keen on reuniting with the centre-back in Italy.

With United having signed Lisandro Martinez, Bailly has been pushed even further down the pecking order. Should Bailly make the switch to Serie A, he could follow in the footsteps of his ex-United teammate Chris Smalling who has enjoyed a career renaissance in the Italian capital.

Elsewhere, Porto are reportedly not interested in bringing Alex Telles back to Portugal. Telles' place at United has been put under threat after Tyrell Malacia joined earlier this summer.

But according to Portuguese journalist Pedro Sepulveda (via Inside Futbol), Porto have no intention, at this stage, of bringing in Telles. It is believed that the European giants are not chasing the full-back and have not approached him about a return.
