Manchester United want Eric Bailly to prove his fitness, before giving him a new contract, ESPN reports.
The 26-year-old has made only 14 appearances for the club during the 2020/2021 campaign and has struggled to be fit for selection.
Bailly played the entire 90 minutes of their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, but has only featured eight times in the Premier League this term.
His current deal with the club expires in the middle of 2022.
However, United want Bailly to prove that his injury issues are firmly behind him before handing him a fresh deal.
Solskjaer wants to bring a left-footed centre-back in this summer, but it remains to be seen how much he has to spend on new players in the upcoming market due to the financial impact of COVID-19.
Bailly has made 99 appearances for United since arriving from Villarreal in July 2016.
