Pep Guardiola holds talks with Bayer 04 star Leon Bailey

Manchester City are set to lose Leroy Sané to Bayern Munich, with Pep Guardiola today confirming the winger will leave.

The Citizens will need a repacement for Sané and according to Fussball Transfers they could go shopping in the Bundesliga again.

Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey is reportedly under serious consideration at the Etihad Stadium to fill the hole Sané will leave.

FT reports that Pep Guardiola personally contacted 22-year-old Bailey to discuss the City project.

Guardiola’s words were ‘well received’ by Bailey, a Jamaican international, who would be open to a Premier League move.

Other English clubs are also interested in Bailey, with City’s neighbours Manchester United recently linked.

Bailey has scored five goals and assisted three in 20 appearances for Bayer this season.

The former Genk player is under contract with Leverkusen until 2023 and is valued at €29.5m by the Transfermarkt site. It is almost certain though, that Bayer would want considerably more than that to sell one of their key players.
