Manchester United injured center-back will be out of contract in the next summer window, and his being linked with a move to a greener pasture.

However, the Red Devils are kicking against losing the player as a free agent and they are reportedly set to trigger a contract extension in his contract with the team.

It’s believed that the player had a mandatory one-year contract extension in his deal when he joined the club three years ago.

With his contract set to expire soon, Solskjaer and his employers are now tipped to trigger the clause by awarding him a one year deal as soon as he returns from his injury layoff.

Eric Bailly has obviously failed to live up to his billings since he moved to the Theatre of Dreams, no thanks to his recurring injuries.

He has featured in just 50 matches and he’s yet to touch the ball this season, though, that is expected to change whenever he is back from his longterm injury.

However, he must contend with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire for a spot a the back of the pitch when he returns to full fitness.

Arsenal were linked with the Ivorian’s services last summer but the Gunners should be ready to miss out on his signature, should United successfully convince the 25-year-old into signing the new deal.
