Bayer Leverkusen general manager Jonas Boldt remains in defiant mood about Leon Bailey’s future at the Bundesliga club.

Sport Bild suggested over the weekend that the German side may consider offloading the winger for €50million in the summer, but when asked about an asking price for the Jamaican, Boldt was not so forthcoming:

“Why should we put a price tag on Leon? We have no plans to hand him over. Our goal is to take him into the Champions League and develop him.”

Bailey was subject to a £22m bid from Chelsea in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mail, but the offer was knocked back by Leverkusen.

The Bundesliga outfit are currently second in the the league table, and are aiming for a Champions League place this campaign. It seems that they have no intention of selling the 20 year old at the moment.

Bailey has been a major factor in the club’s successful season so far, having scored eight goals and provided five assists in 18 Bundesliga outings. He has been with Leverkusen for just over a year after signing from Racing Genk for £12m.
