Manchester United fans react to reported new contract talks for injury-prone Eric Bailly

Premiership Picks

Eric Bailly just does not seem to have the luck of the green does he? The Ivory Coast international has been plagued with injury problems since his arrival from Villareal for £30m.

The 25-year-old has shown flashes of why Manchester United forked out big money to sign the centre-back, but his wretched fortune with injuries has curtailed his progress.

The Ivorian was ruled out for four to five months with a knee injury he suffered in a pre-season win against Tottenham earlier this summer, but according to reports, his Old Trafford career may not be over anytime soon.

Despite his contract expiring next summer, The Sun claim United are set to “sit down” with Bailly over extending his deal with the club, and believe the centre-back could still be the perfect back-up for Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

After hearing the update on Bailly’s long-term future, United fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the club’s reported plans.

Many supporters of the Manchester side were furious with the idea of handing a new deal to a player who had barely featured over the past couple of seasons.

Others however backed the idea, and insisted he is still a “class” player despite his injury problems.

Check out some of the divided reaction of United fans below:
