AS Roma have not made a move for Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey, claims his agent. According to Craig Butler his client has not received an offer from the Italians and is set to stay at Bayer Leverkusen next season, though he admits that an offer from Roma would be too good to turn down.
After Roma missed out on Malcom earlier this week, the Italians have switched their attention to other targets, including Leon Bailey and Ajax forward David Neres. But Butler, who is also the player’s adopted father, denied talks had already taken place. “Roma were interested in Leon a couple of years ago, but since then I haven’t heard from them.”
“I don’t know if Roma are speaking to some intermediary, but they’d have to talk to me”, he said “It wouldn’t be wise not to listen to Roma. Being linked to a great club like Roma is an honour if it were true.” Bailey joined Leverkusen in 2017 and after a series of impressive performances, the forward has been linked with Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
