Having failed in his move for Bayern Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey in the winter, United manager José Mourinho is set to reignite his desire to sign the 20-year-old winger in the summer despite interests from Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal.
The Portuguese manager is content with the performance he has seen so far this season from the youngster, and he wishes to work with him in the summer in order to improve his team’s uninspiring display at the right flank of the field ahead of next season.
Leon Bailey has been in great form for the Bundesliga side so far this season as he has been directly involved in 13 goals after just 14 appearances for the team.
The former Genk player could cause a great transfer rivalry between top Premier League clubs in the summer as all the top six clubs in the league have shown their readiness to capture the young Jamaican international as soon as the summer transfer window begins.
The Daily Star reports that the winger who has represented the Jamaican U-23 could be as expensive as Ousmane Dembele who joined Barcelona from Monaco for a fee of over £100m. With the report via the Daily Star, free-spending Manchester City might be favourites to land the player in the summer due to their financial capacity.
