The Manchester United star dedicates an Instagram post to new signing Romelu Lukaku

Eric Bailly has wasted no time getting on good terms with new Manchester United signing Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international completed a £75m switch to the Red Devils earlier this week after Manchester United managed to hijack Chelsea’s potential deal to sign the 24-year-old striker.

Manchester United jetted out to Los Angeles at the weekend and Lukaku linked up with his new team-mates after enjoying a break in California ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

The Red Devils will be hoping Lukaku can bring the necessary firepower to Jose Mourino’s side to help fire Manchester United to their first league title since 2013.

And Lukaku certainly looks at home with his new team-mates after Bailly posted the above snap of the centre-forward with Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard on social media.

Bailly wrote the following caption on his Instagram page:

“You talking to me, @RLukaku9? 👀”

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season.

The Red Devils won the EFL Cup and the FA Cup in their first campaign under Jose Mourinho.
