ERIK TEN HAG is ready to ax “must-sell” defenders Eric Bailly and Alex Telles this summer.
The Manchester United pair have not reported for pre-season training ahead of their potential exits from Old Trafford.
Both Bailly and Telles have been labeled “must-sells” by the club as Ten Hag overhauls his defence.
In addition, the Manchester Evening News now report that they have yet to return for pre-season.
That is despite the United squad flying out to the USA after Wednesday’s friendly against Lyon.
Bailly and Telles will not be part of the tour squad that will face Arsenal, Wrexham, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund during the trip.
Instead, they are expected to leave the club, with both players into the final year of their contracts.
Bailly spent last season on loan at Marseille, playing 23 times for the French side.
However, there is currently no concrete interest from any specific clubs in signing him.
As for Telles, who won the Europa League on loan at Sevilla last term, he is a target for Al-Nassr.

A move to the Saudi Arabian club would see the Brazilian reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo.
The news of Bailly and Telles’ impending exits comes after Ten Hag stripped Harry Maguire of the United captaincy.
Maguire has confirmed he is no longer the Red Devils’ skipper and admitted he was “extremely disappointed” with the decision.
He could also leave United this summer amid interest from West Ham United.
