The report claims that negotiations will start at £20 million for the Ivory Coast international, and Manchester United's loss might just be Arsenal's gain.
The Gunners don't seem to have improved at all defensively since Unai Emery took over last summer, and the Spaniard will surely be looking to bolster his centre-back options this summer.
And Bailly could be just the ticket at Arsenal.
The 25-year-old joined United from Villarreal in the summer of 2016 for around £30 million, but he has struggled for regular game-time at Old Trafford, making just 42 Premier League starts.
If given the opportunity to play regularly at the Emirates, however, he could be a really useful addition to Emery's squad.
And some Arsenal fans took to Twitter in response to links with the Manchester United man...
You have to wonder what the question is if Emery thinks bailly is the answer.— Andrew (@ancam86) 25 April 2019
His a quality cb definitely a good signing if we get him— Ashleigh (@Ashleig95425772) 25 April 2019
This club is never serious. Going for a defender who can’t hold a spot in this Man. United defence. Hopeless!— Bra Dela (@BraDela9) 25 April 2019
What a signing he would be for us. Absolute beast— Stephen George Lott (@stephenlott) 26 April 2019

I would be happy with this he hasn't had the chance at MU.— neil gott (@daxtongott) 25 April 2019
Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are played ahead of him.— RÖY (@19AJR) 25 April 2019
And you want me to get excited about this?
@Demydeee you aren't a fan of the Ivorian? He can't be any worse than Mustafi— Chris (@Christelle_2104) 25 April 2019
A faster Mustafi.— Roger Woo (@emperorwoo) 26 April 2019
It's worth giving him another chance but I wouldn't pay much for him.— Unai's Gunmen (@Anonymous1076) 25 April 2019
I would take it basically because anyone is better than Mustafi, he has 25yrs, experience in PL and 20M£ is a good price.— Art (@7Dartagnan) 25 April 2019
He’s better than Mustafi so I’ll take him pls......he’ll gain his confidence back under Emery and regain his hot form back— Dhorlyp (@DhorlyPe) 25 April 2019
