Pictures: Eric Bailly pictured in Man Utd colours for first time

Manchester United have secured their first signing of the summer, with Jose Mourinho adding Eric Bailly to the defence. The 22-year old Ivorian will sign for the club on a four-year contract, with the option for an extra two years if United choose to activate that clause.

The efficiency in which Manchester United have gone about and got this deal done is brilliant. Mourinho beat out competition from the likes of Manchester City and Barcelona to complete this move, and what a way to start the summer.

Big things are expected of Bailly, who is regarded as one of the best young central defenders in the world at the moment, and to have him on Manchester United’s books is brilliant news.

With this deal being completed so quickly, it allows Bailly to have some time to adjust to life in Manchester before the season gets underway in August. It also gives the fans a great chance to see their new man take to the field during the pre-season tour which takes place next month.
