Crystal Palace to take advantage of United situation to land 22-year-old forward


Man United seem not to be settled to enforce most of their transfer deals and that might have reflected in their latest summer transfer deals.

Most of the targets for Man United failed to join the club while the Red Devils were forced to make five ‘unplanned’ signings on the transfer deadline which has been spoken about by pundits.

It is also claimed that the Gunners have abandoned the chase of some of their targets, including Watford forward Ismaila Sarr and Crystal Palace are making efforts to take advantage of that to snap up his signature.

Ismaila Sarr was one of those reported to be alternatives for England international winger Jadon Sancho who was a top target for the Red Devils but for the failure to agree with Borussia Dortmund, the deal was lost.

The Sun reports that Crystal Palace are preparing to make a £30 million offer to Watford to be able to secure the signature if the 22-year-old forward as he can still leave the club to join a Premier League side before the end of the week.

While Watford are opened to releasing the player, it is unknown if he is interested in joining Crystal Palace or not while his weekly wage might be an issue to negotiate.
