Chelsea remain Leon Bailey's dream destination, despite interest from Paris Saint-Germain, it has been claimed. 

http://www.insidefutbol.com/2018/09/08/leon-bailey-continues-chelsea-preference-despite-psg-joining-race/389253/

Winger Bailey has excelled in the Bundesliga at Bayer Leverkusen and the BayArena outfit recently locked him down to a new contract after seeing off interest in him over the summer transfer window.

Clubs are still eyeing Bailey, with PSG the latest side to be credited with holding an interest in signing the wide-man.

But, according to German outlet Fussball Transfers, Bailey's dream move remains to Stamford Bridge to join Chelsea.

That's just not a way you should go about judging talent...

Yeah... I wonder if you would say the same about Sterling who happened to be born in Jamaica

Decent?  That would be massive.

Chelsea 'in pole position for Leon Bailey'

Unfortunately knowing our board, when in the pole position means...:drunk::cig::clap:

 

Time and place for all poles I wouldn't mind seeing Ana de Armas sliding down a pole. 3cb51d15d301e689e6373d576a6bb1c8.gif

TeamTalk are claiming that German publication Kicker have written that Bailey has his heart set on a move to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/leon-bailey-snub-arsenal-liverpool-13224406

My heart is set on him too. As an inverted RW (his favoured position). I do not see Barca selling Dembele now, and if they did, certainly not under the sub £100m price range (which I think they MIGHT have taken early in the window). Kylian Mbappé would be £250m, probably £300m, so that is never going to happen. Bale is 30yo before next season, so he is officially off all lists for me (never really was on due to cost) (Shitty are not going to sell Sterling or Bernard Silva (or my REAL wish at LW, Sane) ANY time soon. I won't even get into Salah cock up, lol, that's water under dam by now.

 

That leaves best remotely available RW options (in order)

Leon Bailey

Christian Pulisic

Federico Bernardeschi

David Neres (wonderful young (21yo) player for Ajax)

then drop down

Suso (I see him more as a Pedro replacement squad player)

Wilfried Zaha (just renewed though, insanely overpriced)

Iñaki Williams

Ángel Correa

Cristian Pavón

Florian Thauvin (many hate him here, I think he is massively better now)

Steven Bergwijn (PSV, 20yo, massive upside)

Pablo Sarabia

Marcel Sabitzer

Rony Lopes

Maxwel Cornet

then another drop down

Cengiz Ünder

Allan Saint-Maximin

Domenico Berardi

Samu Castillejo

Yann Karamoh

Nicolas Pépé

Wild Card - Malcom (IF Dembele goes nuclear, maybe Malcom will not like being a bench warmer, BUT he will cost FAR more than the £37m Barca paid for him (which we could have had him for TOO and Sold Willian to Barca for £65m) I will not get over that for a LONG time.

 

 

LW (this is if Hazard leaves mostly)

Marco Asensio (included in a RM deal for Eden)

Federico Chiesa (if we had him and Bailey, we have 2 wingers who can absolutely play either side or switch during a game to add confusion)

Vinícius Júnior  (included in a RM deal for Eden, I would almost rather have him than Asensio, he has massive, huge upside, is potential the best player long run on Real Madrid, he can play RW too)

Mikel Oyarzabal (just renewed to 2024, but still, only 21yo and a crazy technical player, would be a MONSTER in Sarriball and can play inverted RW, like Bailey)

then a drop down

Julian Draxler

Kingsley Coman

Julian Brandt

Hirving Lozano

Paulinho (Bayer Leverkusen 18yo, potential superstar)

Keita Baldé

another drop down

Ante Rebic

Franco Cervi

Pione Sisto

Wild Card   Anthony Martial (I look at him as a striker for us, NOT a LW, although obviously he can play there too)

 

Transfermarkt is really bad at labelling some wingers. They list Bailey as a LW, and Chiesa as RW, when they mostly play the opposite side.

“There’s concrete interest” – Budding Bundesliga star confirms firm interest from Chelsea this summer

https://www.chelsea-news.co/2018/09/theres-concrete-interest-budding-bundesliga-star-confirms-firm-interest-chelsea-summer/

According to Fussball Transfers in Germany, via Football London, Bayern Munich’s £53 million bid did not convince the winger to sign a deal this summer, because he is focused on joining Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea.

Bailey is quoted to have said, he leaves his future in the hands of Bayer, who certainly may have been told of his London wishes.

 “There’s concrete interest. What I can say is that my full focus is on developing myself as a young player, and that’s what I’ll focus on.

If a club wants me, my management and Bayer will take care of it.”

Leon Bailey, Football London

These were only wingers, I listed Talisca and Kai Havertz and Carlos Soler (my top 3 AMF targets) in another reply in another thread.

I do remember Mrs. Just mentioned him as a reminder ;)

Bailey has often been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge and his scintillating performances for Bayer Leverkusen this season haven’t gone unnoticed by Chelsea.

But an old tweet from Bailey has resurfaced on social media picturing Bailey in a Chelsea shirt with Blues supporters urging the club to push through a deal now.

One user posted: “We are linked with this player!!! It’s great when the player is a secret @ChelseaFC fan!!!!”

Bundesliga Star Leon Bailey Sets His Sights on Securing January Transfer to Chelsea

https://www.90min.com/posts/6168504-bundesliga-star-leon-bailey-sets-his-sights-on-securing-january-transfer-to-chelsea

Bayern Leverkusen star Leon Bailey has been lined up as a long-term replacement for Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard and the Jamaican could move to Stamford Bridge as early as January, according to reports in Germany.

The 21-year-old has been at the forefront of attention for European football's biggest clubs following his first full season in the Bundesliga, and Bailey was often linked with a move away from the BayArena throughout the summer transfer window.

The forward eventually stayed with Die Werkself but a dismal start to the campaign, which sees Leverkusen sitting joint bottom of the league table, could persuade Bailey to force a move away from Germany when the transfer window reopens.

Although there has been much speculation over Bailey's future destination, a report in Kicker (via TEAMtalk) claims that the youngster has his heart set on a move to Chelsea and will snub interest from ArsenalManchester City and Liverpool.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich were also believed to be monitoring Bailey's future in Leverkusen, and it is understood that the former Genk winger will cost upwards of €60m.

Bailey was involved in 18 goals across all competitions last season. The Jamaican earned a reputation amongst Bundesliga fans for his ability to cut inside on his left foot and find the far corner of the net - similar to Arjen Robben.

I cannot, for the life of me, understand how people rate WILLIAN over Bailey, even now. Bailey just turned 21, Willian is at his last peak year (I would argue he is already on the downside) and 100 times out of 100 I would take Bailey. He has a GREAT shooting touch, is direct as fuck, and is one of fastest wingers in Europe. He also seems like a model citizen, you never hear a whiff of scandal or dressing room drama about him.

We NEED TO GET THIS DONE BEFORE BREXIT. I am really worried about a possible Tory cunt block on EEA/EU players signed by FA teams, and a higher quota on homegrown. I think he qualifies, due to Jamaican citizenship, not sure.

That's my biggest concern with him, his dad likes to talk a lot.  We were tired of Courtois' dad, and now AC's dad seems to want to talk to the papers a lot.  Bailey's step father is a whole other level.
