As Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo get “older”, Aston Villa and Jamaica ace Leon Bailey can become the “best player in the world”, as per the claims by his agent.

When making a senior breakthrough at Belgian side Genk while still in his teens, the 26-year-old Leon Bailey was considered to be a hot prospect, according to Goal.

With 12 goals and 11 assists recorded for Villa this season as they take aim at a top-four finish in the Premier League, he has impressed in Germany and England since then.

Bailey has made no secret of his desire to grace the Champions League stage and is said to be attracting admiring glances from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Craig Butler, Bailey’s representative, believes that the flying forward is ready to join the global elite, as he told the “Up The Villa Podcast” of the potential boasted by his client: “There is so much more to come. I don't think Leon has hit 40% of his potential yet. You've only seen 40% of what Leon can do. It's about the timing, I believe that one day he will be the best player in the world."

"He'll keep getting better and better and one day he will be regarded as the best player in the world. Messi is getting older, Cristiano’s getting older, Neymar has injury problems and is getting older, [Kylian] Mbappe as well. Leon has no cap on his potential. You've not seen anything yet,” he added.
