Bailly has just one year left on his current deal and should cost less than Lovren too (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The Ivorian has struggled for games since his move to Old Trafford and did not make many starts under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer too.

United are interesting in buying Harry Maguire, and they might have to sell if the land the Leicester City centre-back (h/t Liverpool Echo).

Keeping hold of Lovren for the upcoming season would be great for Liverpool. His experience is a plus for the Reds, and it would be difficult to find a quality replacement for the 30-year-old.
