Eric Bailly’s agent has warned Manchester United that his client’s future “will need to be assessed” if his situation does not improve.
The centre-back signed a new United deal at the start of the season that will keep him at Old Trafford until the summer of 2022.
But the injury plagued Ivorian has featured in just four games in all competitions this season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continuing to favour Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire.
And Head of Promoesport Graziano Battistini says if his client doesn’t start to feature more prominently, other options will be considered.
“The experience with the Red Devils depends, as always, on luck, who you meet, on the opportunities,” Battistini told Calciomercato.
“If he has the right chances, for me he can be an important player to solve some problems of the team. If all this does not happen, it is clear that the situation will need to be assessed, but now it is too early to say certain things.
“My Spanish partners who manage him are cautious in all respects, but the boy is very focused on Manchester United.”
Bailly was linked with a move to AC Milan in the summer transfer window and Battistini admits a move to Serie A would be logical.
He added: “The boy is in an important context such as that of United, before evaluating an exit there must be absolutely valid situations.
“The Milan idea may have a logic, but we need to evaluate many implications, today we are talking about nothing.”
