In-demand Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey is reportedly keen to secure a Premier League move amid speculations linking him with a switch to Manchester United
Bailey has been a hit in the Bundesliga over the past three seasons, registering 24 goals and 14 assists in all competitions for the German outfit.
Known for his devastating speed and acceleration as well as a potent left foot, the 22-year-old has caught attention from several top Europe’s clubs, including Manchester United and Manchester City.
Indeed, the Red Devils have identified the Jamaica international as an alternative if their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho fails to come to fruition.
Now, according to the Sports Mole, United’s hopes of landing the quick-silver forward has received a massive boost, as Bailey lines up a summer switch to the Premier League.

The former Genk ace would be a much cheaper option for Manchester United than Sancho, considering that the Leverkusen star is available for around £30million.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still hopeful of bringing in the English winger, but his stratospheric £120m price tag continues to throw a spanner in the works of the prospective deal.
Meanwhile, ‘Die Werkself’ consider offloading Bailey, who has tumbled down the pecking order this season, although he has three years left on his contract at the BayArena.
