According to the reports, Manchester City are closely monitoring Leverkusen’s Bailey and are preparing for a summer move for the winger.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form for Leverkusen this season scoring five goals and making one assist and City are interested in signing the winger based on what they’ve seen of the youngster.

According to the report, Leverkusen could let Bailey leave for a fee of around £40m.

Bailey would be a fine addition at the Etihad and would slot right into the squad as a replacement for Sane under Pep Guardiola, who would surely get the best out of the Jamaica international, should the move materialise.

However, at the moment there is no report of an official bid made by City for Bailey.
