According to a Leah Smith’s exclusive report for Stretty NewsPremier League giants Man United and Spurs are interested in Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey, as well as European teams AC Milan and Dortmund.
Stretty News has found that Bailey is “desperate” for a change in January, but has been professionally advised to be patient and wait until the summer to take a big step in his career.
This comes after Mail reported that the winger has joined the English agency Unique Sports Management, which will work alongside his father’s Phoenix Sport Management to manage his career.
Stretty News adds that the 23-year-old would appreciate a move to any of the four aforementioned clubs.
A transfer in January is reportedly unlikely, as Bailey is not expected to submit a formal transfer request to Bayer Leverkusen, the German team is unsure which team will make the first move.
Stretty News summarizes that any approach for Bailey going forward will depend on Leverkusen’s financial position in the second financial quarter of 2021, as well as that of stakeholders.
Bailly has enjoyed a solid start to the season as the ace, who is deployed primarily as a right-back, has contributed nine goals and seven assists in 18 appearances across all competitions.
With six goals and three assists since the return of club football after the November international break, Bailey is certainly playing level to deserve a transfer in January, but there is no need for talent to rush, especially considering the pandemic of Covid-19 is still paralyzing the entire world and hurting your chances of a mid-season turnaround from a financial perspective.
