Reported Manchester United target Leon Bailey continued his impressive season as he scored a stunning goal in Bayer Leverkusen’s 2-0 win against Mainz 05 on Sunday, and Red Devils fans have urged their club to sign the attacker.

The Mirror reported on January 8 that United, along with Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are set for a summer showdown over the 20-year-old winger, who could fetch a fee in excess of £40m.
Bailey’s brilliant strike from outside the penalty area at the weekend was his eighth Bundesliga goal – and his 10th in all competitions – in 17 German top flight matches this season, following his move from Genk this time last year.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the Jamaican via social media, and while one said “he is the perfect right winger for us”, another said “Bailey is better than Rashford”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
