Rumour is Eric was furious with being left out against AC Milan and wants out.
Saw that on Twitter too.

I prefer him to Lindelof but that's not saying much. He can't stay fit so if he left the biggest loss would be his character.

And Solskjær has won it!

I probably do too he's definitely the type of defender we need alongside Maguire but he's just so injury prone. To be honest it does seem a bit rich for him to be ''furious'' at being left out when he's missed so many games through injury over the last 5 years.

Didn't expect such a quick reported deterioration :(, bloody shame as I still believe he's at worst the 2nd best CB in the squad

Such a bizarre story this one, I feel like he's done fairly well for game time as a percentage of the occasions he's actually been fit to play.

Despite having a high top level he's also a bit of a liability sometimes, and should be grateful to at least be getting regular game time at this level when fit - which is not very often.

I could understand frustrated, but furious? It's weird and makes me worry a bit about the state of the dressing room in general for someone seemingly so popular amongst the lads to have this mindset.

Give him what he wants so.

If that's true he has some f**king neck to be at this given how little he's contributed in his time here.

He has no right to be furious, he's been here five years and he's unreliable.

If he wants out so be it, let him go. None of this offer him a contract to try and raise his price bollocks. Get him out and get another cb

he’s a good defender. Injuries impacted him a lot. He can not claim he is a regular starter unless he has a good run without being injured.

No way he is leaving... this must be his agents way of negotiation.
His life is just to good to be true and he want another 5 years of this.

Didn't he just played his 100 game for us? In four years! And the first year he played around 35 games.
Bruno cant be far away from 100 games in a year and a half.

And who will pay let's say 20-25 mil £ and his salary, and only get 20-25 games a year out of him.
Naaa, he gets another 4 years, a small wage increase, and he will be smiling when signing the contract.
I think he is good when he is fit, and hes speed suites partnering Maguire better than Lindelöf in more games than what he plays. But the smartest thing is probably to sell if there really is someone willing to pay what we want for him.

He should be ahead of Lindelof or Maguire but only gets a look in when either is injured or suspended

Are we really sure all this is true? And it's not just another injury?

To be fair if anyone was likely to catch it it's Bailly. Is there any injury the lad hasn't had?

Doubt he would have played anyway, he's going to be shelved now until the summer until he's either sold or signs a new contract.
