In August 2018 the winger signed a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that nets him a whopping salary of 3.9 Million Euros (3.5 Million Pounds) per year. We have crunched the numbers, this means he earns €10,685 (£9,483 ) per day and €445 (£395 ) per hour!
Since you've been viewing this page, Leon Bailey has earned...
Wow! This means the average man in the UK needs to work for at least 9.6 years to earn the same as Chippy earns in only 1 month.
Net Worth & Market Value
5 Million Euros (4.5 Million Pounds)
29.5 Million Euros (26.3 Million Pounds)
As a winger, he participates in more goals for his club. Has Leverkusen made full use of his talent? If they had, his market value wouldn't have dropped from a previous high of €45 million in 2018. It sits at a mere €29.5 million now. All his struggles have paid off, though. The youngster, thanks to his career and endorsements, is already worth about €5 million.

Yes, Jamaica does have a national team, and some kids do play football in the tiny island nation. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, this lad plays as a winger for Bayer Leverkusen.
Chippy didn't have it easy when he tried to make it as a professional in Europe. Playing for the Phoenix All-Stars Academy in Jamaica as a youngster, he traveled with his stepdad all over Europe to find him a club. Genk was interested but couldn't do much because of FIFA's rule on accepting minors. The Belgian labor ministry got involved, too, to deny him his opportunity. AS Trenčín offered him a chance to turn pro, and he took it. A transfer to Genk was always going to happen. He moved to the Belgian side in 2015. Winning the Belgian Young Footballer of the Year Award at the end of the 2015-16 season, he moved to the Bundesliga side in January 2017.
The only reason this Jamaican made it to the top is because of his talent. We know he'll continue to work hard to stay where he wants to.
