"He reminds me of Nemanja Vidic" - Twitter reacts after Manchester United complete first summer signing


Ivory Coast's Eric Bailly is Manchester United's first summer signing after joining from Villarreal.

Fans on Twitter were delighted to see that the Red Devils mean business this summer as they compared the 22-year-old to former defender Nemanja Vidic.

We really are pathetic though for paying that much for Bailly tbh

@RichardCann76 I think we still need a ball player from the back. Heard this Bailly kid is more Vidic than Rio.

Remember seeing bailly in the dusty under 11s tournament in Ivory Coast, knew he would be the black Maldini after that. World class

Does anyone know who Eric Bailly's agent is? Just checking that United has not entered into the Mourinho/Mendes 'arrangement' yet.

Absolutely hilarious seeing rival fans say we paid too much for Bailly. £20M for a 22 year old with loads is potential is smart business.

Bailly is far from a finished product, but Mourinho obviously thinks he can fine tune him. Athleticism is there in heaps and bounds #mufc

Eric Bailly defensive style reminds me of Vidic. No nonsense defending #mufc
