Eric Bailly extended a contract and a new deal with Man Utd after reassurances during his playing time.


The player is more confident

The center-back has been competing for starts this season, and with just one year left on his current deal, his reps have been alerted to interest from other clubs. However, after discussions with Ole Gunnar and United, the 27-year-old feels more confident in the role and could sign a new four-year deal, which looks set to be announced before the end of the season. Ole Gunnar confirmed last month that the club is in talks with the center defender on a new deal, saying they are speaking with representatives from Eric and Eric’s. He says he keeps the locksmith longer and you can also see his performances and he was very pleased with him. The player also said that his playing style sometimes made him lose too many games because 100 games was not enough for the period he was here. He’s becoming more and more reliable, so yes, he is who they talk to.

The Ivorian joined Villareal in the summer of 2016 and signed an extension in January 2020 to keep him at the club until the end of the 2021-22 campaign. Eric Bailly has only competed for United 15 times this season with various injuries and, more recently, Covid-19 keeping him out of the box with first-pick pair Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof. He made 100 appearances in all competitions, a number that no doubt would have been higher if he hadn’t suffered serious injuries at the time. 


A little about the new contract

On the summer transfer target Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for some time there was a central defender to list while the club was holding several players in front of the window. It is also clear that they are interested in signing a center-forward agreement. If Edinson Cavani decides to leave, the need for a forward will be further exacerbated, and with Eric determined to stay and United keep a cleaner slate, the need for another center half may not be as urgent. When asked about his progress since the draw with Leeds, Ole said the extra two would help keep his team up the table. United is expected to be active during the summer, but budgets are still tight due to Covid.
