United tracking Leverkusen pair

Manchester United are tracking the Bayer Leverkusen pair of Edmond Tapsoba and Leon Bailey.

Tapsoba is a 22-year-old centre-back who plays his international football for Burkina Faso. He has become the mainstay of the Leverkusen defence this season ,and has not missed a minute of league action, acquiring a reputation for his ability on the ball, and tactical awareness,

Bailley is a 23-year old Jamaican winger who has long been coveted by Premier League clubs. Tottenham are also monitoring his situation, as are AC Milan.

In the case of Tapsoba, he ha just signed a new contract whi9c runs until 2026, and Leverkusen are unwilling to let him go for less than his release clause, which is currently estimated to be at least £44 million.

However, Bailly may be easier to prize away. His own deal runs until 2023 and, although Leverkusen would dearly like him to say, they know they face an uphill battle to convince him and may be ready to cash in instead.
