The salary of the Ivorian centre-back compared to his Manchester United teammates
Manchester bought him for 30 Million Pound and it seems a very good investment by José. His market value stayed about the same, which means his market value is currently still estimated at 35 Million Euro (30 Million Pound). Signing at The Red Devils ain't bad for your bank account. Eric knows. Every year he earns about 4.5 Million Euro (4 Million Pound), which gives him currently an estimated net worth of 12 Million Euro (10.5 Million Pound). Way to go, Eric!
He married his long-time girlfriend in June 2016, only a couple of days after he signed his mega contract at Old Trafford. They met eachother in the capital of Ivory Coast, Abidjan. She was working at a roadside mobile phone kiosk when suddenly pretty Eric showed up. By then Eric was not a professional footballer yet, and frequently was making phone calls at her kiosk.

Bailly Car - What does he drive?
Arriving at The Red Devil's training ground in his white Range Rover.
He has also been spotted several times in an amazing blue Jaguar! This is what we call "arriving in style"!
And yet another car! A true Red Devil needs a red car as well, of course..
His teammates call him 'The Beast'. And we all know why! The ruthless defender prefers to play as a central defender, but can also play as a right back. Born in Ivory Coast, but started his professional career at Espanyol in 2011. He moved to Spain when he was only 17 years old. He was spotted by Espanyol's scout Emilio Montagut after participating in a youth tournament in Burkina Faso. He made his debut for the reservers of Espanyol in 2013-14, who play in the Segunda Division B. In October 2014 he made his debut for the first team of Espanyol in La Liga. He was immediately promoted to the main squad, but played only 5 games for them. In January 2015 the beastly defender signed a five-and-a-half-year contract at Villareal. They bought him for a 5.7 Million Euro fee, as a replacement for Gabriel Paulista (who moved to Arsenal the very same year). His star kept on rising. After only one season at Villareal it was the legendary Manchester United who showed interested and managed to buy him for 30 Million Pound. He was the first player signed by the (by then new) coach José Mourinho. Almost every match he is part of the first eleven and he already won some personal awards such as man of the match awards and the player of the month trophy (august 2016, shortly after his arrival). This man has a bright future ahead of him!
