Manchester United had a disappointing season this time around, and with this in mind incoming manager Jose Mourinho is looking to strengthen the team for the next season. United will need to bring in quality players in defense and in attack. Thus, Mourinho has identified Villareal’s centre-back Eric Bailly for a potential move to the United.
According to the Daily Mail, United are close to signing the player in a deal worth £30m. Bailly is mainly a centre half, but he is good at playing the role of a full-back as well.The player featured in 35 matches last term and scored one goal and also provided an assist for the club.
As United looks to bring in quality players into the squad and Bailly may be a lottery of sorts handed to the Red Devils at this point of time. Fast, tall and a strong central defender that the player is, he will be a good addition to United’s squad next season.
