New Manchester United signing Eric Bailly has posted a short video of himself, in which the Ivorian is running on a treadmill expressing that he simply cannot wait to make a debut at his new club.

The 22-year-old became United’s first summer acquisition under new manager Jose Mourinho earlier this month, moving from the Spanish outfit Villarreal.

The centre-back has sent a message to supporters on social media ahead of pre-season training beginning.

He wrote: “The countdown has begun. ?????? Can’t wait to start as a Red Devil!”

Bailly has racked up more than 50 appearances for Villarreal over the last two years and will be looking forward to nail down a spot likely alongside Chris Smalling.
