Manchester United fans react to latest Ismaila Sarr reports

There is growing speculation linking Manchester United with a move for Ismaila Sarr.

The Telegraph report United have enquired with Watford over Sarr as the club weigh up options ahead of deadline day.

This follows a report from The Independent a fortnight ago which claimed United had reached out over Sarr.

The price quoted was £40 million. A separate report last week from 90 Min claimed Watford could be open to a loan with an option to buy.

Sarr made his first start of the season for Watford at the weekend in their 1-0 victory over Luton.

As far as alternatives to Sancho go, Sarr is an acceptable one, fitting a similar profile of a young, talented player.

He has big ability, helping to destroy Liverpool’s unbeaten season last year, and he has been compared to Senegalese countryman Sadio Mane.

Against United last season his shot drew an error from David de Gea for a Watford goal, but more impressively was the way he fooled the usually unflappable Aaron Wan-Bissaka into mistiming a tackle and giving away a penalty.

The 22-year-old offers pace and unpredictability and he suits United’s counter attacking style.

Supporters will have to be patient with him. He can be inconsistent and struggled for form late last season.

But Sancho has had his share of inconsistent form too. United are buying potential, rather than a complete player now.

Sarr might be a player worth buying, and some of the fan reaction was generally optimistic about making a late move for the Watford ace.
