Eric Bailly is third choice centre-back for Manchester United, as Olé Gunnar Solskjaer often pairs the duo of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

Bailly has impressed the few times he has been called upon, but hasn’t found much game time, with injuries also playing a toll.

According to a report by The Sun, the Ivorian international is considering his future at the club, as he’s tired of playing second fiddle to Lindelof, irrespective of whether he plays well or not.

A source told the Sun: “From Eric’s point of view, he thinks he will only play now if Lindelof is out, irrespective of how he plays.

“But he thinks that is the easy option and that Solskjaer can do it because he doesn’t like to kick up a fuss or start knocking on the manager’s door to ask questions.

“If he was left out because he was making mistakes he would understand it but that’s not the case. Eric just wants to feel appreciated by the manager and the club.”

Bailly’s contract with the club expires next summer, and he may not sign a new deal.
