The defender signed a four-year deal with the Red Devils after being heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent days.

Bailly becomes Jose Mourinho’s first signing as Manchester United manager following the Portuguese coach’s appointment last month.

And the Ivory Coast international could not hide his delight at completing his move to the Premier League club, as he posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Wednesday afternoon and wrote: “Hello, @ManchesterUnited. 😊 It’s a dream come true to be a new Red Devil.”

The signing of Bailly is believed to be the start of a major transfer overhaul at Manchester United this summer as Mourinho bids to revamp his squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils continue to be linked with a move to bring striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the club on a free transfer.
