Tottenham failed to make a single signing during the summer and Mauricio Pochettino is eager to bring in reinforcements in the January window.
The reminder of the £85m would be spent on Bailly, WHO United won’t yield for fewer than the £30m they got the defender in 2016.
Bailly suffered the humiliation of being substituted once simply eighteen minutes against Newcastle-upon-Tyne last week.
The 24-year-old was signed by Mourinho and at once became his No.1 centre-back, however has seen his stock dramatically decline this season.
United have struggled for consistency this campaign and have already registered 3 defeats within the Premier League.
