Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has addressed speculation about Eric Bailly’s future at the club, with the center-back’s current contract set to expire in 2022.
Bailly has only made seven Premier League starts so far this season and reports have claimed the 27-year-old is unhappy with his lack of playing time.

Asked about the defender’s future ahead of United’s clash with Burnley on Sunday, Solskjaer said: “Eric played well when he played.

“I know there has been speculation. We talk to him about his contract so I don’t really see any problems. “

Bailly recently tested positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Cote d’Ivoire and Solskjaer is hopeful the player will be available for selection in time for Burnley’s game.

“I hope he can train tomorrow, depending on how he feels about himself. He passed his tests today, so we need to have confirmation that he’s still negative. “

He added: ” [It’s a] big bonus that he didn’t have to put pressure on his foot [against Granada], Yes. I have to hope he can be available and not make matters worse, that’s the decision I have to make, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

“He wasn’t really supposed to be on the bench, he didn’t practice yesterday [Wednesday] but, just in case, he raised his hand and said if necessary I could do a job.

“So it’s a decision I have to make on Sunday morning. But it is important to us. It is a difficult decision. You should realize how Marcus is feeling in a few days. “
