Eric Bailly Has Addressed His Manchester United Future on Instagram

Eric Bailly Has Addressed His Manchester United Future on Instagram

Eric Bailly has taken to Instagram to clarify his position at Manchester United, and it doesn’t look like the centre-back will be going anywhere any time soon.

The 24-year-old arrived from Villarreal for a fee of around £30 million back in the summer of 2016 and was one of Jose Mourinho’s earliest signings at Old Trafford.

His initial performances looked very promising, with supporters under the impression they’d managed to snap up a genuine gem but his 2017/18 season certainly didn’t follow that path at all.

Bailly has been left on the bench for many of United’s biggest games this season, with both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones regularly making mistakes whilst playing ahead of him, and it was a similar story during Saturday’s FA Cup final at Wembley.

Bailly didn’t manage to get off the bench, leading to speculation that he could be seeking a new club this summer, but his latest social media post certainly doesn’t read like someone who is heading for pastures new:

He’s struggled with injuries during his spell in England too, but with his country not appearing in this summer’s World Cup, perhaps next season could finally be the year that Bailly manages to fulfil his potential.

What do you think?
