United complete Bailly signing

Defender pens four-year deal

Manchester United have completed the signing of defender Eric Bailly for a fee believed to be in the region of £25m.

The 22-year-old Ivory Coast international, who becomes new manager Jose Mourinho's first signing since taking over from Louis van Gaal as United manager last month, has put pen to paper on a four-year deal.

Centre-back Bailly had attracted plenty of interest from big clubs including Barcelona and Manchester City, but has opted for a mover to Old Trafford.

He completed a medical yesterday before finally signing on Wednesday.

United manager Mourinho expressed his delight at his first signing since taking charge, saying: "Eric is a young central defender with great natural talent. He has progressed well to date and has the potential to become one of the best around.

"We look forward to working with him to help nurture that raw talent and fulfill his potential.

"Eric is at the right club to continue his development."
