Man Utd have to agree signing of £40million winger in January – Opinion

Leon Bailey

Manchester United have world class players in their attacking midfield with Fernandes playing as the main CAM and Rashford playing on the left flank.

However, they lack quality and depth as far as the right wing position is concerned. James was lured last season and he has been highly inconsistent. On the other hand, Greenwood is talented but still not top quality and has a lot to learn.

Transfer: Man Utd in position to finally sign £215,000-a-week playmaker next month – Report

In such a situation, the Red Devils were looking to lure a top player in the summer. They tried to sign Jadon Sancho but the Dortmund star stayed put.

Moreover, the Old Trafford outfit also moved in to lure Ousmane Dembele from the Catalan giants but once again, they failed. Therefore, Solskjaer should make amends and sign a top right winger in the January transfer window.

In our opinion, Man Utd have to agree the signing of Leon Baily, who has been in fantastic form this season for Bayer Leverkusen.

The 20-time English champions were linked with the Jamaican international in the summer and recently, the 23-year-old attacker has changed joined an English agency to increase his chances of moving to the Premier League. He will be represented by his father.

He has been Bayer Leverkusen’s best player by far in the current campaign. In all competitions, so far, the former Genk winger, who can also play as a center forward, has started 14 games and directly contributed in no fewer than 16 goals (9 goals and 7 assists).

Thanks to his top performances, the German side are currently second in the table, only two points behind leaders and reigning champions Bayern Munich.

Not to forget, in 4 Europa League starts, the 8-capped international directly contributed in 7 goals to help his team top the group. Leverkusen will play Young Boys in the first KO round of the competition.

Bailey is a speedy winger, who can maneuver and strike the ball with both feet. His current contract with the Bundesliga side will expire in 2023 and as per The Sun, he is valued at around £40million.

Man Utd have to face Aston Villa on Saturday knowing that a win will take them joint top with PL champions Liverpool, who have ample quality and depth in the squad. To challenge the Anfield side, Solskjaer must improve his team next month. In your opinion, should he move to sign Leon Bailey in January?
