Man Utd fans fuming with reported contract talks for Eric Bailly

Having arrived from Spanish side Villareal in a £30m deal back in the summer of 2016, Eric Bailly has had a wretched run of luck at Manchester United.

The Ivory Coast international has had his Old Trafford career blighted by serious injuries, meaning that he has played just 74 times for the Red Devils since joining. The 25-year-old has been out of action this season with a knee problem suffered against Tottenham in pre-season earlier in the summer, and there is a real question mark over his long-term future at United.

His current contract expires at the end of the campaign, and The Sun now claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will take up an option that will extend Bailly’s deal by an extra year. The report reveals that this is down to ensuring they do not lose the centre-back on a free transfer.

After hearing the update on Bailly’s contract, United fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the situation.

Should Man Utd extend Eric Bailly's contract?

Yes

No

Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted they couldn’t believe the club would be thinking of extending the Ivorian’s deal, and insisted his injury troubles have proven that he wouldn’t be worth it.
