His rebuilding job at Manchester United began when Ivory Coast central defender Eric Bailly became his first signing, joining from Spanish side Villarreal.

United, who will play in the Europa league after missing out on Champions League place, are also favourites to sign Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic while Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
