The Ivorian international will remain at Old Trafford, despite recent reports stating he was growing frustrated under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over the lack of play time.

Bailly’s biggest problem, however, has been staying fit. There’s a brilliant defender in Bailly but he always seems to run out of luck and gets injured

Bailly told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy. This decision is something I didn’t have to think about.

“I love this club and I love playing for Manchester United. I’m happy and so are my family, everything is good.

“Now the moment with my injury has passed and I’m fit and feel good, and that’s it. A new contract is like a new challenge and I’m ready for this.”

The red devils boss, Solskjaer was happy to have Bailly signed up to a new contract, but fans still expect the manager to dip into the transfer market this summer.

United need a top centre-back reportedly to partner with Harry Maguire but Bailly is a very good option to have and we probably shouldn’t forget Victor Lindelof, who is currently ahead of the Ivorian in terms of team selection.

The manager said: “I am pleased that Eric has signed this new contract. He is still learning and improving all of the time under the coaches here.

“Eric has improved his robustness since my time as manager and he will continue to play a significant part in the squad.

“He possesses fantastic speed, timing of tackle and has that aggression which, of course, you need as a centre-back. He is a popular member of the squad and we look forward to continuing to work with him going forward.”
