Manchester United are closing in on the deal to sign the alternative to top target Jadon Sancho according to the Daily Express.

Watford winger Ismaila Sarr is the right wing alternative to Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho for Manchester United and the aforementioned report said that the Red Devils are on the verge of securing his transfer on loan for the whole of this season.

Manchester United have tried to sign Englishman Jadon Sancho since this summer’s transfer window started, and they have been unsuccessful so far.

Dortmund gave the Red Devils until August 8 to meet his £108m asking price, and they were unable to meet up with that condition mainly due to the finance involved.

Jadon Sancho is now expected to stay at Borussia Dortmund for the current season thus prompting Manchester United to consider an alternative in Senegalese international Sarr.

The Red Devils want to sign a right wing specialist in this transfer window.

It was disclosed that Watford are open to a loan deal for Ismaila Sarr as Manchester United are the only team interested in him after Liverpool opted to sign Diogo Jota.

Premier League champions Liverpool were forced to turn to Jota after Watford slammed a £50m price tag on the African star.

Ismaila Sarr is now on course to sign for Manchester United on loan with the option of a permanent transfer.
