“Eric has been isolating in Ivory Coast,” Solskjaer said to reporters last week.
“He is now back. Hope he’ll be available this weekend. Hopefully he can train with the team and see how he feels. He did a new test today, and it returned a negative result.
“Eric has played well when he’s fit enough. I know there has been rumors. We are talking to him about a new contract. I don’t have a problem with him.”
Bailly could be part of the Manchester United squad when they travel to face Leeds on Sunday at Elland Road.
