Two Manchester United Players Are 'Demanding Answers' About Their Future

Manchester United duo Eric Bailly and Edinson Cavani are reportedly 'demanding answers' from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer about their futures at the club.

Both men didn't feature in Sunday's 2-0 win over Manchester City, with Bailly on the bench and Cavani recovering from injury.

Bailly has been at United since 2016 and wants 'honesty' in regards to his role in the squad - as United are keen to strengthen in defence this summer.

A source told The Sun: "Eric doesn't feel he has any trust from Ole and he thinks that's unfair.

"He wants the coach to have confidence in him and back him up but he feels he isn't being protected at all and that hurts."

The Ivorian international's struggle with injury has been documented and he hasn't managed to overtake Victor Lindelof in the pecking order.

He's played 14 games in all competitions this season with the last being Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.

In regards to Cavani, he arrived at Old Trafford as a free agent on transfer deadline day last summer.

United are keen to bring in another forward down the line and at 34-years-old, Cavani is aware his gametime could be limited.

The Uruguayan has been a hit so far, making 25 appearances in all competitions and scoring seven times.

His contract expires in the summer but it can be extended for an additional year.

Reports in South America recently claimed Cavani was close to joining Boca Juniors, but those rumours have been shot down.

Cavani has been nursing a knock in recent weeks and Solskjaer explained his omission from the weekend's squad.

He told Sky Sports: "He's got a niggle again unfortunately. He had to come off training yesterday. We had to make a team without him."

United are now second in the Premier League and return to action in the Europa League against Italian giants AC Milan on Thursday.

Do you think Eric Bailly and Edinson Cavani will be at Manchester United next season?
