Manchester United are reportedly open to agreeing a part-exchange deal involving Eric Bailly and Villarreal defender Pau Torres.
Bailly has made just four appearances during 2020-21, taking the Ivory Coast international to 15 outings for the calendar year.
In a bid to solve their problems in the middle of defence, TEAMtalk claims that United want to swap Bailly with Villarreal's Torres.
The 26-year-old earned his move to Old Trafford in 2016 through his performances for the Yellow Submarine, a route which Torres has taken to become a target for a number of top European clubs.
Unwilling to pay in excess of £60m for the Spaniard, United are hoping that they can lower any fee with the inclusion of Bailly in any proposal.
