Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to give Eric Bailly the chance to prove himself at Manchester United next season, according to reports in the media.

ESPN, as quoted by The Manchester Evening News, is reporting that Solskjaer is prepared to stick with the Ivory Coast international next season.

However, it is claimed in the same story that the Red Devils are looking to replace Ashley Young this summer as they plot an overhaul of their squad at Old Trafford.

The same report says that Manchester United have already “cooled” their apparent interest in Harry Maguire and Kalidou Koulibaly because Solskjaer is hopeful that Bailly will be fit for pre-season.

Bailly has struggled for both form and fitness in recent seasons, but he will be hoping to prove himself to Manchester United’s new permanent manager soon.

Instead, it is claimed in the same article, the Red Devils are going to prioritise signing a replacement for Young, who turns 34 in July.

Young was a constant presence in the Manchester United team last season, but the report says that the Red Devils are eyeing Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a replacement this summer.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy this term.
