Jose Mourinho fears Manchester United defender Eric Bailly may need surgery

Bailly has not played since the 1-0 Premier League defeat at Chelsea on November 5, after sustaining the injury on worldwide duty with the Ivory Coast.

United are not short of numbers at the heart of defence, with Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof all on hand, but Mourinho offered a mixed view of the mid-season market.

The Citizens host Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League, a team that Guardiola reserved great praise for.

United take on West Brom at the Hawthorns on Sunday and will be hoping that Spurs can take points off Manchester City at the Etihad this weekend.

Jose Mourinho is stalking Willian, says the Daily Mail, but for the moment Chelsea are "reluctant to sell".

"I signed a three-year contract here because it was the time myself and the board we decided on at that time".

"In big clubs people look to the history of the club and not the current moment, that is hard".

"It was hard but it was good for my development as a manager too which is something that I always try to do".

Asked about Griezmann, who Diego Simeone claimed could soon leave Atletico, Mourinho added: 'I don't speak about players - especially players who belong to other clubs'.

"I don't speak about players", he said.

"I'm not a big defender of the January market", Mourinho told a news conference on Friday.

Alternatively, since it's almost January, an emergency dip into the transfer market might be an alternative solution.
