Manchester United allegedly regard Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey has allegedly emerged as a potential target for Manchester United.

Despite making just 11 starts in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season, the 22-year-old remains on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs.

Arsenal and Liverpool have recently been linked with an approach for the Jamaica international, with Chelsea another team who are admirers of the wideman.

However, the Daily Mail says that United are now contemplating a move for Bailey, who would be a cheaper alternative to Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

United remain undecided over whether to commit to paying £100m for the England international at a time when the majority of clubs are suffering the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

Leverkusen are allegedly prepared to sell Bailey for £40m ahead of next season.
