New Manchester United signing Eric Bailly has sent a message to supporters expressing that he simply cannot wait to get started at his new club.

Bailly became United's first signing under new boss Jose Mourinho earlier this month, clinching a move from La Liga side Villarreal.

The centre-back posted a short video on social media displaying himself on a treadmill as he works on getting into absolute peak physical condition ahead of pre-season training beginning.

Bailly will be aiming to nail down a spot as one of United's first choice centre-backs, likely alongside England defender Chris Smalling.

Unlike Smalling who has been at Euro 2016, he has been able to rest up this summer and is clearly looking forward to a fast start.

The Ivorian defender helped Villarreal reach the Europa League semi-finals last season, with his decision making and athletic ability standing out as traits which could help him succeed in England.
