United centre-back Eric Bailly unlikely to join Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr

Some recent developments have shocked Manchester United fans as Eric Bailly might end up remaining with his parent club this summer.

As per information from Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth, the 29-year-old seems less likely to move to the Saudi Pro League team Al Nassr during this summer’s transfer window.

Furthermore, he has opted against pursuing a transfer to Besiktas, despite receiving an offer from the Turkish club.

Man United acquired the Ivorian footballer from Villarreal in the summer of 2016 for approximately £30 million. Despite the high expectations surrounding his transfer to Old Trafford, Bailly hasn’t met those standards.

Speculation has been widespread that the central defender’s tenure at United might end. Nevertheless, there is now a possibility that he might extend his stay in Manchester even after the end of the summer transfer window.

Updating via Twitter, the Sky Sports correspondent has shared insights on the Ivorian’s future. Currently, the African star seems to be firmly in the ranks of Man United.

This suggests the possibility that Bailly might remain at Old Trafford for another season, although uncertainties persist. The defender’s contract with United expires next summer, although the club can extend it for an additional year.

United might consider selling him for a mere £7 million, the current outlook indicates a strong likelihood of the player staying with the team.

However, it wouldn’t be surprising if he departs Old Trafford for new opportunities within the next few weeks.
