Manchester United have announced the signing of Villarreal defender Eric Bailly.

Though the £31 million deal is still subjected to a successful work permit.

The Ivorian international passed his medical on Tuesday and has signed a four year contract with the Red Devils.

“It is a dream come true to be joining Manchester United. To play football at the highest level is all I have ever wanted to do,” the player told ManUtd.com.

“I want to progress to be the best that I can be and I believe working with Jose Mourinho will help me develop in the right way and at the right club. I am looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and to starting this new chapter of my life.”


Bailly is the first signing of the newly appointed Jose Mourinho, as he looks to work his magic on the Old Trafford based club.

Manchester United boasted one of the best defensive record for the 2015/16 season.

Bailly is expected to be followed by Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will pen the contract once his current deal with PSG expires at the end of June.
