Eric Bailly played the complete 90 minutes against the Eagles on Wednesday evening but has only featured on 8 occasions in the English Premier League this season.
A recent report claimed that 20-time English Champions are in contact discussions with the Ivory Coast defender as his current agreement is due to expire in the middle of year 2022.
However, according to ESPN, Manchester United want Eric Bailly to prove that his injury issues are behind him before rewarding him a fresh contract.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be keen to bring a left-footed centre-defender to the club this summer, but it remains to be seen how much the Norwegian Boss has to spend on new acquisitions in the upcoming window due to the financial implications of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Eric Bailly has made 99 outings for the Red Devils since joining from Villarreal in July 2016.
