Bayer’s new discovery will follow Berbatov’s path
The excellent performance and interest of the big clubs made Leo Bailey cheating to leave Bayer (Leverkusen) in just over a year. This is guaranteed by the footballer himself, who was assigned to No. 1 for the first half of the Bundesliga championship. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder could already be in Chelsea, but in December the leadership rejected an offer of Londoners for over 20 million pounds.
“Young, but I have seen many other players like me who go too far into big clubs and fail. Leverkusen is the perfect place for me, “Bailey told Sport Bild.
“Many great players have benefited from their time in Bayer and I keep on developing, and eventually taking the next step. It is important for me first to make a name and then go to one of the big European clubs, “added the dark footballer.
Bailey was born in Jamaica, but there are still no matches for the representative team of his country. Two of his grandparents are British, giving Gareth Southgate a chance to persuade him to play for the three lions.
