Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen on Eric Bailly’s Manchester United future: report

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen on Eric Bailly remaining at Old Trafford despite question marks over his future.

The Ivorian’s latest injury seemed to spell the end to his career under the Norwegian but it appears that’s not the case.

Fans consider the defender to be the second best centre-back at United after Victor Lindelof but his proneness to injuries meant he might’ve been running out of time to prove his worth.

Solskjaer is said to be hopeful that Bailly will return from his injury in time for the club’s pre-season tour.

The Red Devils’ legend is placing a lot of hopes on the pre-season tour to resolve the issues within his squad.

According to the Express, ESPN report that Ole doesn’t want to sell Eric to a top four rival and wants to give him a chance to prove his worth once more.

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are certainly less deserving than the former Villarreal and so it makes sense he’s given more time.

The aforementioned trio have had a lot of time to show that they’re deserving of a starting XI berth despite their injury records and lack of real quality.
