Manchester United Fans Are Over the Moon as Club Announce Eric Bailly Signing

Manchester United announced the signing of Eric Bailly from La Liga side Villarreal this afternoon and fans are absolutely delighted about it.

The centre-back arrives as the first big-money transfer of the Jose Mourinho era, costing United in the region of £30 million.

With the Old Trafford club still linked with a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic but no fresh news forthcoming, the announcement of a £30 million signing has gone down particularly well with the club’s supporters.

How do you think he’ll fare in England? And is this the end for Daley Blind at United?
