Bailly eyes greatness at Old Trafford

Off-season signing Eric Bailly has made it clear that he wants to become a Manchester United stalwart in years to come.

The Ivory Coast international, who is currently on duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, has quickly become a regular starter under Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho and hopes to build his legacy at Old Trafford.

"Hopefully I can play in Manchester all my life," Bailly told sport360. "I'm very happy here because it is such a great club.

"It's such an honour to play for United and I hope I can continue giving my best to become a great player in this club.

"It's difficult to claim the position of being a first-team player, but I have to enjoy every minute I get because it's a wonderful club and I'm very happy to be there and to be part of it.

"I'm happy to be at such a big club. I never dreamed a better dream than playing for Man United. Hopefully I can enjoy every bit of it every day."

The 22-year-old centre-back left Villarreal to join UNited six months ago, and has since made 17 appearances in all competitions for Mourinho's side.
