Manchester United and Jose Mourinho have made their first signing under the self-proclaimed Special One’s guidance. Eric Bailly, 22, is now a Manchester United Football Club player. He has put pen to paper on a four-year deal at Old Trafford.
Shortly after the move was confirmed, the Ivorian took to Twitter to express his delight at the move. Stating that it really is a dream come true to join this historic club.

Manchester United haven’t disclosed a fee for Bailly, but after all appearances and add-ons, it is believed to be somewhere around the £30million mark which isn’t too bad in the modern market.
Hopefully, this is a sign of some big activity in the transfer window. Obviously Jose Mourinho has a huge job on his hands, and he will be looking to overhaul the squad into one that fits his playing style. Although it is probably too big of a job to do in one window, he will be looking to get as much as possible done.
