You can’t gather much from pre-season matches, but it’s clear Bailly possess a raw talent and could become a huge figure at Old Trafford with time.
He has made a massive step in his career after joining Man United as a relatively unknown talent and will have to prove himself on the main stage in the Premier League this season.
He looks like he has sensible head on his shoulders and will be hoping to show fans he was worth the investment at Man United and adapt to life in England as soon as possible.
