Manchester United target Leon Bailey nets sensational goal for Bayer Leverkusen from tight angle December 13, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer
Take a bow, Leon Bailey!
The Bayer Leverkusen winger scored a sensational goal to put his side in front against Hoffenheim.
Bailey, who has been linked with a host of top European clubs in recent weeks, played a quick one-two with his teammate from a corner before curling a ferocious shot past Hoffenheim goalkeeper Oliver Baumann.
The Jamaica international doubled his tally just 20 minutes later after a terrible back pass from Andrej Kramaric left Baumann in no man’s land for him to tap into an empty net.

The strike wasn’t the first sensational goal scored in the Bundesliga this weekend.
Arsenal outcast Matteo Guendouzi also scored a stunner for Hertha Berlin before appearing to send a message to his parent club and Mikel Arteta.
Bailey has been on superb form this season and reports earlier this week claimed a host of clubs sent scouts to watch him as he scored twice in the Europa League earlier this week.
The 23-year-old, who’s best known for playing on the wing, has taken on extra responsibility and become playmaker since Kai Havertz’s departure to Chelsea during the summer.
It is understood Leverkusen are refusing to budge on their £36million valuation, with Leeds having an offer rejected in the last transfer window.
However, his seven goals and six assists in all competitions this term could make the club increase their valuation of Bailey.
The forward has three years left on his current deal at Leverkusen.
