Wow! Chelsea told to sign up £122 superstar Sancho and not Bailey in summer window!
European Football expert Gabriele Marcotti has claimed Chelsea should sign Jadon Sancho and not Leon Bailey in the summer.
There has been alot of speculation in the media suggesting that we are willing to splash around £85 million in the summer to try and acquire the services of Bailey, who has become one of the most exciting wingers in the Bundesliga over the last few seasons.
Frank Lampard is keen to bolsters his squad at the end of the season and improve the side enough to get back challenging for that Premier League title, and also as a possible replacement for the likes of Willian and Pedro. who have been tipped to leave the club at the end of the season.
However, Marcotti has opened up and claimed that we should not pay £85 million to sign Bailey in the summer and instead try and acquire the services of Sancho, who is one of the most creative players in the game right now and has already netted an impressive 14 goals in the Bundesliga this season.
Marcotti does not think Sancho would cost much more than Bailey and therefore says he would be a better signing for Chelsea: “Alright, with all respect to Leon Bailey I think these numbers are crazy,” Marcotti told ESPN FC.
“£85m for Leon Bailey when Jadon Sancho, who is younger and a lot more talented in my opinion, can be had for not much more than that…
“Personally I see this as one of those stories that gets put out there, obviously Chelsea are chasing Jadon Sancho along with a host of other clubs, and all of sudden these stories go out ‘Oh but what if they went for Bailey instead?’ and maybe that lights a fire under some people.
“But for me I don’t see it, I wouldn’t spend that kind of money on Leon Bailey.”
