Eric Bailly to Reject New Contract Amidst Solskjaer Rift Rumours

Ahead of Manchester United’s FA Cup Quarter-final clash with Leicester City, reports have surfaced that Red Devils defender, Eric Bailly, is ‘angry’ with the club’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It is also being reported that he is turning down an additional one-year contract extension that will see him remain at the club until 2023.

Bailly was said to be livid after Solskjaer ignored him and played Victor Lindelof alongside Harry Maguire during Man United’s Europa League 1-0 victory against AC Milan at San Siro last Thursday.

Bailly has mostly had to play second fiddle to Lindelof as Maguire’s centre-back partner and has grown more and more annoyed at his lack of opportunities under Solskjaer, with the Milan snub the final straw.
