EPL: Defender signs deal until 2022 with Man Utd

Manchester United have triggered a two-year contract option, to tie Eric Bailly to the club until the end of the 2021/2022 season, ESPN reports

Bailly, who arrived at Old Trafford in a £30 million transfer from Villarreal in the summer of 2016, had been due to be out of contract at the end of this season.

But the club has now exercised their option to extend his deal for a further two years.

Bailly has made just 74 appearances for United since arriving from Spain, due to a series of injuries.

He has yet to kick a ball for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team, after sustaining a knee problem in July.

But having returned to action with United’s U-23 team this month, Bailly is in contention for a return to first-team duties.
