Bailey out of Juve match

Bayer Leverkusen confirmed star winger Leon Bailey won’t face Juventus in the Champions League due to a muscle tear.

The club released a statement explaining the extent of the injury that he sustained during last night’s 2-1 defeat to Lokomotiv Moscow.

The Jamaica international went off at half-time and tests showed a muscle tear that will keep him out for “several weeks.”

It is therefore safe to say Bailey won’t be ready to take on Juventus on October 1.

Roma try again for Bailey

Roma are yet again targeting Leon Bailey, although Bayer Leverkusen have placed a €40m price-tag on the 21-year-old Jamaican.

The left-sided winger was already a major target in 2017 when he left Genk for Bayer Leverkusen at a cost of €13.5m and was back on their radar last summer.

According to Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb, Roma are ready to try again for Bailey, who turns 22 next month.

He’d be the replacement for Stephan El Shaarawy, who flew out to China yesterday for a medical in his €18m transfer to Shanghai Shenhua.
