Picture: Manchester United legend Nemanja Vidic meets player dubbed ‘new Vidic’

Manchester United look to have found a real gem in the form of Eric Bailly. The youngster was a relative unknown until Jose Mourinho splashed £30million on him from Villareal over the summer, but that isn’t the case anymore. He has made a sensational start to life at Old Trafford.

The 22-year-old has been a mainstay at the heart of Manchester United’s defence so far, and has really made a positive impact on the back four since arriving at the Theatre of Dreams.

Yesterday, Nemanja Vidic paid a visit to say hello to his old teammate, and as you can see from the photo below, the Serbian warrior had the chance to pose with Bailly for a photo.

It really does feel like Bailly has filled a Vidic sized hole at Manchester United. He’s that no-nonsense defender the club have been calling out for, and it really is brilliant to see him progress so rapidly.

Check out the photo of Vidic and Bailly here:
