Could Sarr be heading to Manchester?

Since pre-season began, Manchester United have struggled to get their main transfer window target, Jadon Sancho.

Borrusia Dortmund have admirably held a firm stance and look favourites to keep their star man at Signal Iduna Park, forcing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to look elsewhere for an attacking solution.

Watford star winger Ismaila Sarr has become an alternative option following a sparkling campaign in the Premier League at Vicarage Road despite the club’s relegation down to the EFL Championship.

According to the Independent, interest from the 20-English Champions has increased due to Liverpool redirecting their limited funds to purchase Bayern Munich midfielder, Thiago Alcantara.

The 22-year-old Senegal international will cost £30-million, around the same price the Hornets bought him for from Ligue 1 outfit, Rennes.

With six goals and four assists in 30 appearances in all competitions since arriving in England in 2019, the pacey attacker could provide much-needed competition with Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Mason Greenwood should a deal be agreed upon.
