Manchester City hunt for Bailey

English Manchester City are looking for Leroy Sane’s replacement and considering Leon Bailey from Bayer as one of the candidates.

This transfer rumor, not without reason, can come true for the simple reason that the Citizens need a wing player in case of Leroy Sane leaving the club. According to Ukrainian agent in the camp of Manchester City, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Leroy seriously intends to move to Bayern and does not see other options.

In this case, Manchester City decided to rummage in the German market in order to restore the balance of wingers in the leagues. The Citizens liked the lateral attacking midfielder of Jamaican origin from Bayer Leon Bailey. The lad is quite young, he is only 22, has good speed and technique. But also in his arsenal there is what Pep Guardiola loves the most - he knows how to break into semi-wings and draw attention to himself.

This season showed that Manchester City in their style of play cannot be attributed to any of the existing formations. The team achieves efficiency by overloading the wings and thereby frees up areas for other players on their team.

Bailey is a player of a suitable type, although he plays quite primitively in comparison with teammate Kai Havertz. The German is distinguished by its versatility, two years younger and more promising. Pep has a player with a similar role - this is Bernardo Silva, so if he needs Kai, he will only be a perspective as a substitute for the Portuguese.

Returning to Bailey, it will not be a complete replacement of Sane at Manchester City, but the Jamaican will still progress, especially under the guidance of Guardiola. If, of course, the ban on the European competitions does not interfere. This season, Bailey scored five goals and one assist in 17 Bundesliga matches for the Pharmacists.
