Manchester United have no plans of loaning out Eric Bailly during the ongoing transfer window, Sky Sports News claims.
The centre-back has struggled for regular game time this term, and he is reportedly frustrated by his situation.
The defender is open to leaving on loan with Milan interested, but United have no desire of sanctioning the move.
Ralf Rangnick is reluctant to lose any players this month unless there are permanent transfer offers on the table.
Even then, he is not keen on losing Bailly, particularly with the recent setback for the squad due to coronavirus.
The Ivorian is presently the fourth-choice centre-back behind Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof.
The 26-year-old may have to wait until the summer before pursuing a new challenge away from the Mancunian giants.
Milan may have to look elsewhere to bolster their squad. They are eyeing a new centre-back after a serious injury for Simon Kjaer.
Paris Saint-Germain’s Abdou Diallo has been identified as another target.
