Eric Bailly wants his situation at Manchester United to be clarified before the start of next season, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Ivorian defender wants to clarify his situation with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho ahead of the start of the new campaign.

Bailly dropped down the pecking order towards the end of last season at Old Trafford and he now wants to know about his role in the Red Devils team moving forward, according to the same story.

The same article says that Bailly wants to hold a face to face meeting with Mourinho to clarify his situation ahead of next season.

However, the story also insists that Bailly is perfectly happy at Old Trafford, and that he just wants to have assurances about his situation at the club.

The article says that Bailly is keen to make sure that he won’t spend most of next season on the bench.

Manchester United are currently preparing for their third season under Mourinho after they ended up in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since 2013.
