Ivorian footballer Eric Bertrand Bailly is reportedly ready to ignore signing a new deal at Manchester United after being snubbed by Solskjaer for Europa League tie against AC Milan.

Manchester United did themselves lots of good by beating AC Milan to reach the quarterfinals of the Europa League as Solskjaer and his men are now eyeing the title.

The last time Manchester United won the Europa League was when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the Red Devils.

Having played for Manchester United in the first leg of the Europa League knockout stages, Eric Bailly was of the thoughts that he would face the Italian side again.

According to the report on UK Sun, the 26-year-old was angry at being overlooked by Solskjaer for the Europa League tie.

The report added that Bailly has told pals he will tell Manchester Unitedchiefs he has no interest in signing the 12- month extension he was due to agree next week.

Since 2016, Eric Bailly has played 60 games for Manchester United scoring one goal for the Red Devils.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League giants Arsenal were handed a tough battle in the Europa League quarterfinals as the Gunners will be facing Slavia Prague after the draw was made on Friday, March 19.

Last two seasons, Arsenal got into the final of the Europa League before they suffered an embarrassing defeat against Chelsea in what was Eden Hazard's last game for the Blues.

Manchester United who are the other Premier League side remaining this term in the Europa League will be facing Granada in what is expected to be a tough tie for Solskjaer and his men.

If Solskjaer's side should manage to get through, then they could face the team they beat in the 2017 Europa League final, Ajax.

And Arsenal could face former boss Unai Emery's Villarreal in the semi-final if both sides go through.
