Man United have been mentioned as one of the clubs interested in the signature of Watford winger Ismaila Sarr who is also reported to be a major target for Liverpool.

It is understood that Watford are not willing to stand in the way of the 22-year-old who played 28 games in the Premier League last season as they are hoping to make up for their financial losses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, teamTalk claims

Watford have valued the player for £40 million and might not go any less to release Ismaila Sarr to any of the suitors with Liverpool known to be the favourites in this case.

Also, Ismaila Sarr might not seek to be relegated with the team to the Championship and that could help the deal but United’s chances of getting him depend on Liverpool’s unwillingness to strike a deal.

The Independent reports that Ismaila Sarr would be a replacement for Jadon Sancho if they fail to land him as negotiations for a fee with Borussia Dortmund is proving difficult.

Jadon Sancho is Man United’s top target but the £100 million tag placed on him is too high for the Red Devils and that could stop the deal from happening.
