If reports in the media are anything to go by then Manchester United are willing to give up their pursuit of Jadon Sancho and they have an alternative in sight.
According to The Independent, Man United have made contact to sign Ismaila Sarr from Watford, who were relegated from the Premier League last season.
The famous British outlet have mentioned that the Red Devils face competition from champions Liverpool but the Reds might not have the financial power to complete his signing this summer.
The Independent claim that at least £30million would bee needed to hire his services from the Championship club. However, last month, renowned Sky Sports reporter, Kaveh Solhekol, claimed that the Senegalese international could leave the Hornets for a fee as high as £50million.
Sarr joined Watford last year and had an impressive PL campaign in which he directly contributed in 11 goals (Transfermarkt).
In December 2019, at Vicarage Road, the African star was MOTM vs Manchester United. He scored a goal and provided an assist in a contest that the home side won 2-0.
Not just that, in February 2020, Sarr directly contributed in 3 goals against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side to end their record equaling 18-game winning run.
So, the 22-year-old has the talent to win games single-handedly and Old Trafford legend Gary Neville is a huge admirer of the winger. Back in July, he heavily praised the youngster and said (via The Metro):
“Manchester United need a right winger. He’s (Sarr) a big, big talent, honestly he really is.”
In your view, should Solskjaer splash the cash to sign Ismaila Sarr before the end of the summer transfer window next month?
