Eric Bailly, a Manchester United defender, has decided against leaving the club to join Fulham this summer.

Fulham have enquired about Bailly’s availability, with the newly promoted Premier League club interested in a season-long loan with the option to purchase.

According to Sky Sports News, the Ivory Coast international is not looking to move at the moment.

Bailly would prefer to remain at Old Trafford and compete for a starting spot under new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

Meanwhile, Man United are open to doing business on Bailly, but would prefer a sale or at least a loan with an obligation to buy.

Bailly signed a contract extension last year and is due to remain at Man United until 2024.

The 28-year-old joined Manchester United from Villarreal a few years ago.
