The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the return of the FA Cup this weekend. With a Premier League title win looking unlikely, the competition is Jose Mourinho’s most likely trophy oppurtunity.
Standing in their way, though, is Huddersfield. The Terriers have had a mixed season so far in the Premier League, but they’ve proven that on their day they can beat anyone. As a result, the clash is far from a foregone conclusion for the Red Devils.

This is, obviously, massive news for Man Utd. The Ivorian has yet to play in 2018, and his team have really missed him. He is, without a doubt, their most important central defender, and when he’s available, Man Utd’s squad is far better for it.
Providing strong defensive work, characterised by fantastic tackling and a powerful aerial presence, the centre-half is the real deal.
Unsurprisingly, news of an impending return for Bailly has generated a lot of excitement amongst Man Utd fans, with supporters taking to Twitter to reveal their delight. They’ve really missed him, that much is clear.
Take a look at what fans have had to say below…
