Manchester United officials have made a firm transfer decision on the future of injury prone defender Eric Bailly who’s about to enter the last year of his contract at Old Trafford.
According to Sky Sports, Manchester United have decided to trigger a two-year contract extension for Eric Bailly that will take his time at the club to 2022.
Eric Bailly has missed a lot of games for Manchester United in the past years due to several lengthy injuries.
He was the first player signed under the Jose Mourinho managerial era which ended in December 2019.

The Ivorian international center back signed for Manchester United in a £30m deal from Spanish La Liga team Villarreal.
Eric Bailly would have been a free agent this summer if the Red Devils had decided against giving him a contract extension.
The ex-Villarreal and Espanyol player suffered medial knee ligaments during the league game at home to Chelsea last season (April) only for him to return in pre-season this summer to suffer another knee injury.
Eric Bailly has not played any game for Manchester United because of that injury but he was on the bench for Premier League clash at Liverpool on Sunday evening which ended in a 2-0 defeat.
