Manchester United are prepared to hand Eric Bailly a new contract, if he proves his fitness for the rest of the season.
The Ivorian has been with the club since the summer of 2016, but he has yet to establish himself as a regular starter.
He has suffered numerous injuries which have kept him out on the sidelines and the current season has been quite similar with niggles.
According to ESPN, the Red Devils are aware of the defender’s quality, but want him to prove his fitness first to earn a contract extension.
The centre-back’s deal expires in June next year and his future may be sorted in the summer depending on the proceedings this term.
AS Monaco’s Benoit Badiashile could be an option for the Red Devils, having failed with an approach to sign him last summer.
