Leon Bailey could be one of the 2 players goal.com’s Sam Lee has claimed Pep has under consideration for a summer transfer to the blues.
According to Lee: “Pep Guardiola wants a pacy, tricky and versatile forward to strengthen his Manchester City attack for next summer, and that is why Leon Bailey is on their radar.”
Sam believes that the profile of the kind of player that Pep is looking for is obvious from those he has tried to sign or has kept very close tabs on: Mahrez, Mbappe, Sanchez & Ousmane Dembele. Only Mahrez remains on offer.
Other outlets have set the young Leverkusen forward’s price at an affordable 44 million of our British pounds.
At the tender age of 20 years old, Bailey has 12 goals and 6 assists for the German club so far. The player joined Leverkusen from Genk in January 2017 and is strongly built, fast and direct. According to goal.com, Guardiola & Begiristain would look to sign Bailey before the World Cup and only the small possibility of luring Kylian Mbappe from the clutches of PSG would stand in the way of this signing.
Take a look at Leon Bailey in the video below. What do you think Blues?
