I'm so happy we're signing Eric Bailly, I've watched his whole career. Was there when he was born, his first day of school also. Superstar.

Well having watched him for 14 minutes I can say Eric Bailly is better than Laporte at every aspect of the game, typical small club City

Eric Bailly to United for £30m. The lengths you have to go when you're not a Champions League club.
