Man United determined to sign No.9 Jamaica international
Leon Bailey wants to play in the PL and is keen for a transfer to be finalised this summer. Man City reportedly holds a strong interest in Jamaica international, while Red Devils, Liverpool and Everton will have scouts in place to watch the winger in action when his side takes on Bavarians in the DFB Cup Final on the weekend.
Leon has three years left on his contract, but Bayer Leverkusen are open to selling the winger this summer and could accept an offer of nearly £30m. A host of clubs lining up to sign Bailey, the winger is keen on a switch to England. He is a crucial member of the national team.
The 22-year-old winger has long been linked with a move to the PL and snubbed offers from English clubs in 2017 when he decided to join Bundesliga giants from Belgian side Genk. The Jamaican forward feels he is set for the step up and has been tipped as a direct replacement for Leroy Sane at Man City.
Pep Guardiola has already been in touch with the speedy winger and he will look to impress the watching scouts on Saturday in Bayer Leverkusen’s final match of the 2019/20 campaign.
Liverpool are not expected to do any major transfer business this summer, but Leon may be an attractive option considering his price tag. Red Devils, meanwhile, may need a back-up option if they cannot land Jadon Sancho and Leon has spoken in the past about his desire to play in the Premier League.
