Eric Bailly’s agency, Promoesport, has warned Manchester United the player’s situation at the club must improve, otherwise, things may need to be reassessed.

The Ivorian signed a contract extension with United back in January, but has struggled for playing time this season, with his injury issues not helping.

United manager, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has instead, preferred the pair of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof in defence, with Axel Tuanzebe also appearing on occasions.

This has led the defender’s agency to speak up on the situation, urging that he needs to play more or he could be forced to move.

Speaking to CalcioMercato recently, head of Promoesport, Graziano Battistini said of Bailly’s situation, “The experience with the Red Devils depends, as always, on luck, who you meet, on the opportunities.

“If he has the right chances, for me he can be an important player to solve some problems of the team. If all this does not happen, it is clear that the situation will need to be assessed, but now it is too early to say certain things.

“My Spanish partners who manage him are cautious in all respects, but the boy is very focused on Manchester United.”

Bailly has played for United just four times this season, but to be fair to Solskjaer, his injury problems haven’t helped his chances.
