The race continues as Chelsea, Manchester City battle Manchester United for Leon Bailey?

Chelsea and Manchester City could reportedly battle Manchester United for the signature of Bayer Leverkusen attacker Leon Bailey during this summer’s transfer window.

United have allegedly identified Bailey as a potential alternative to Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho as the club attempt to bring a new wide player to the club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

According to the Daily Mail, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are ‘seriously interested’ in the Jamaica international, but Chelsea and City are also in the hunt for his signature.

The report claims that all three English clubs will send scouts to watch the 22-year-old in action when Leverkusen face Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal final on July 4.

Bailey, who is thought to be valued by his German side in the region of £40m, has scored seven times and provided three assists in 28 appearances at club level this term.

The attacker’s current deal at the BayArena is due to run until June 2023.
