Manchester United center half Eric Bailly started the opening two Premier League games of the current campaign.
However, since his terrible display against Brighton on Match Day 2, Mourinho has kept the Ivorian defender out of the starting XI.
In such a situation, reports in the media suggest that the African star is looking for a move away from the Old Trafford club.
According to Mirror Sport, the 24-year-old defender is ready to quit Manchester United in the winter transfer window and the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal are interested in hiring his services. The British outlet have mentioned that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is known to be a huge fan of the former Villareal center back.
As far as Spurs are concerned, Alderweireld was mainly linked with Manchester United in the summer transfer window but eventually stayed with the club. He could depart in the winter window and Bailly could replace him.
At United, Jose Mourinho has got more than a few options for his central defense with stars like Rojo, Lindelof, Jones and Smalling around as well. Therefore, in my opinion, Bailly’s departure will not really hurt Man United’s back line.
