Man Utd open Watford talks for Sarr

September 29, 2020

Manchester United have approached Watford for Ismaila Sarr.

The Telegraph says United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned his attention to the winger, 22, after struggling to strike a deal for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho.

Sarr only joined Watford in 2019 from Stade Rennais for £30million, scoring five Premier League goals as the Hornets were relegated to the Championship.

Liverpool were leading the race for his £40m-rated signature earlier this summer.

But Jurgen Klopp eventually moved for Wolves forward Diogo Jota instead.

And it now appears that Man United are in pole position for the highly-rated Senegal international.
