Manchester United need reinforcements in all key departments this summer and the new manager Jose Mourinho seems already active in the summer transfer window.
The former Real Madrid boss must improve the quality of United’s attack and defense. As far as the back line is concerned, a top defender is heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.
According to Daily Mail, Manchester United are edging closer to signing Villareal center back Eric Bailly in a deal worth 30 million pounds.
The versatile Ivory Coast star is mainly a center half but he has been effectively utilized as a full back as well.
Last season, the 22-year-old African international featured in 35 games for the Yellow Submarine, scored one goal and also provided an assist. Sky Sports’ La Liga expert Terry Gibson claims that Bailly is a “fast, tall, athletic and strong central defender”.
Eric will largely strengthen Man United’s back line and after luring him Mourinho must focus on bringing a world class star to improve the attack.
