Manchester United revise £30m offer for Villarreal's Eric Bailly as Jose Mourinho also moves for Chelsea's Nemanja Matic

Manchester United have revised their offer for Villarreal defender Eric Bailly to £25million plus an extra £5m in bonuses.

The Old Trafford club are looking to reach accord with the Spanish side over a £30million deal for the 22-year-old centre-back and have made initial inquiries for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, as reported in Sportsmail.

Villarreal are happy to let Bailly go considering they stand to make a substantial profit on the £4.4million they paid to Espanyol for him in January 2015 but want more of the £30m fee up front.
