We read in Tarikh Baghdad, Volume 15 page 552:

أنبأنا علي بن محمد المعدل أخبرنا أبو علي بن الصواف أخبرنا عبد الله بن احمد بن حنبل حدثنا منصور بن أبي مزاحم قال سمعت مالك بن أنس وذكر أبا حنيفة فقال كاد الدين كاد الدين

Mansoor bin Muzahim said: ‘I heard Malik bin Anas saying Abu Hanifa conpired against religion; conspired against religion’.

research of the book; bashar awad maroof says: isnaad sahih

there is another narration, similar to this one, again termed sahih by bashar, and that says

“Abu hanifa conspired against religion, and who conspires against religion, he has no religion”

we also find that:

وقال جعفر حدثنا الحسن بن علي الحلواني قال سمعت مطرفا يقول سمعت مالكا يقول الداء العضال الهلاك في الدين وأبو حنيفة من الداء العضال

Mutrif said: ‘I heard Malik saying the error must be extinguished from religion and Abu Hanifa was an error’

researcher of the book, bashar says; isnaad sahih
