Eric Bailly ‘Given Assurances’ Over His Manchester United Future By Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Amid Interest From Arsenal And Paris Saint-Germain

Eric Bailly impressed on his return to Manchester United line-up in the 1-0 win at Leicester

Eric Bailly has been given assurances over his Manchester United  future after January interest from Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain. 

The Ivory Coast centre-back, 24, returned to the starting line-up in the win over Leicester at the weekend.

Caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised the partnership of Bailly and Victor Lindelof after Sunday’s 1-0 victory.

‘Fantastic to have a clean sheet,’ Solskjaer said after the game.

‘And they (Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof) played well against Arsenal together. Today, we started a little sloppy – Eric knows – but they really came good.’

Arsenal and PSG, who take on United in the Champions League next week, have been keeping tabs on Bailly.

He had started just one Premier League game under Solskjaer since his straight red against Bournemouth last month.

But Solskjaer met with the £30million signing from Villarreal and made it clear he was in his plans for the rest of the season, according to The Sun. 

Sunday’s hard-fought win at Leicester saw them replace Arsenal in fifth place, who were beaten at Manchester City.

Manchester United are now just two points behind Chelsea who occupy the final Champions League spot.
