Man United & Eric Bailly
For the past few days reports have been spilling out regarding Man United’s Eric Bailly.
Eric Bailly hasn’t been seen since the start of November, and his absence has undoubtedly been a blow for Jose Mourinho this season.
The Ivory Coast international has been sidelined with a groin injury and an ankle injury.
In the meantime, questions are being asked of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, who were exposed in the 1-0 defeat at Newcastle.
Eric Bailly back in training tomorrow
On Thursday, Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez Haya has confirmed good news for Man United.
Bailly will return to Manchester United’s first team training on Friday.
The aim for the Red Devils is clear: to try to have Bailly ready for the Champions League match away at Sevilla next week.
That game is scheduled for next Wednesday evening.
Eric Bailly will train tomorrow with the team and the coaching staff will check in the next 3 trainings before Sevilla's game if he is okay for playing. Feelings are really good about the injury (he is recovered) and the only "problem" could be his lack of trainings.

Sevilla are sixth in the Spanish top fight, and they are fighting to finish the season with a European berth.
Saying that, seventh place in La Liga is likely to offer entry into next season’s Europa League.
Boost before Huddersfield Town
The FA Cup is back this weekend, and one of the top matches is the all-Premier League clash between Huddersfield Town and Manchester United.
Of course, when the sides met earlier in the season in the Premier League, Huddersfield claimed their best result of the season.
David Wagner’s men beat Man United 2-1 on that occasion.
In a match Victor Lindelof must still be hoping to forget, Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre were the heroes for the Terriers.
Will lightening strike twice for Huddersfield this weekend?
