Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey is not a priority target for Manchester City, according to The Athletic‘s David Ornstein.
The Citizens, along with Liverpool, Manchester United and Everton were said to have had scouts in the stands to see the Jamaican in action against Bayern Munich in the German Cup final on Saturday.
Despite Bailey reportedly being available for between €20m (£18m) to €30m (£27m), with his valuation being hit by the global health crisis, it doesn’t appear his low price tag will attract a bid from City.
The departure of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich has led to speculation that the Manchester club will look for a like-for-like replacement for the German.
Bailey has been suggested as a possible option due to the fact he plays as a conventional winger on the left-hand side for Leverkusen, but manager Pep Guardiola has come out and stated recently that he doesn’t feel it is necessary for the club to replace Sane.
Instead, it is believed City will prioritise a move for a centre-back this summer, with the club having struggled defensively over the course of this season.
