According to reports, two Manchester United players are demanding answers over their future at the club from Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Edinson Cavani’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season and his future is still up in the air.

The Sun via Daily Express claims the Uruguayan striker is keen to remain with the Red Devils but wants clarity from Solskjaer on how any new additions to the squad will affect his minutes on the pitch.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland and a transfer for the Norwegian striker could reduce the playing time of Cavani next season.

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is the other Manchester United player demanding answers from Solskjaer, according to The Sun.

The centre-back apparently wants honesty from Solskjaer over his first-team status.

Solskjaer has preferred the centre-back partnership of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire with Bailly only stepping in when Lindelof is unavailable.

Bailly does not feel he is getting equal treatment and wants his future sorted out at the end of the season.

A source told the Sun: “Eric doesn’t feel he has any trust from Ole and he thinks that’s unfair.

“He wants the coach to have confidence in him and back him up but he feels he isn’t being protected at all and that hurts.”

“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.”
