Manchester United have completed and announced a deal to bring Eric Bailly to Old Trafford. The 22-year old has signed a four-year contract at the Theatre of Dreams, and Manchester United will have the option for a further two years.
This transfer deal really has come out of nowhere, and it has only been picked up by the media over the last three or four days. Now the deal has been completed in an extremely quick time by the Manchester United board.
In terms of his style of play, Bailly is a quick and aggressive centre-back who doesn’t take any prisoners. He’ll be a brilliant partner for Chris Smalling at the heart of defence for the years to come.
Hopefully, this is the first of many incomings at Manchester United during this off-season, with Jose Mourinho looking to re-mould an ageing side in his image.
Welcome, Eric Bailly!
