Manchester United defender Eric Bailly seems to have had enough of sitting on the United bench and is ready to force a move away from Old Trafford.
The Ivorian international has been a quality player whenever he has been fit, but injuries have taken a toll on his time at the club.
Bailly has never really established himself at Old Trafford since signing up from Villarreal in 2016 for a fee of £33m.
Bailly’s contract is set to wind up next summer, and he will be free to talk to clubs from January next year. However, Manchester United are keen to tie him down to a new deal.
A report by Sky Sports has claimed that the centre-back is angry at United’s sudden determination to tie him down to a new deal and feels that the club are simply trying to extract a bigger fee for him him in the summer.
According to the report, Bailly is determined to leave the club soon enough and won’t sign a new deal.
“Eric loves the club and the fans, his family are settled in Manchester and he’d like nothing more than to spend the rest of his career at Old Trafford,” a source told Sky Sports.
“But he feels the club has been very disrespectful towards him and frankly he’s had enough.
“He feels that no matter what he does, he will never be first choice for Ole.
“He now realises he’s too good and too young to spend his time sitting on the bench.”
