Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly will snub interest from other clubs in the summer transfer window.

The former Villarreal sensation, who joined Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, has struggled to find his place under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 25-year-old has managed just 17 appearances in all competitions this season, and hasn’t been part of a matchday squad for over a month.

Both Arsenal and Lyon have been linked in recent weeks with the Ivory Coast international, however, he’s not planning to leave the club he joined in 2016 just yet.
