Ismaila Sarr, Watford, 2022/23

Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr hit the headlines on Monday as he scored a wondergoal for the Hornets in their Championship draw with WBA, but the Senegal international is presently a prominent figure off the field as he makes football transfer news.

Sarr has been a long-time target of Manchester United but it appears that the Red Devils have been beaten to the winger by Leeds United.

The Elland Road club have apparently stolen a decisive march over their Premier League rivals for the former Rennes star, yet the Red Devils reportedly sent technical director Darren Fletcher on a scouting mission to the Monday night fixture.

Sarr scores wondergoal but Man Utd fans unimpressed

The former Scotland midfielder would have had his eye caught by a brilliant goal Sarr scored from the halfway line, but equally a tame penalty in the second half went some way to costing his side three points.

Nevertheless, with Man Utd having long been linked with Sarr, it has left fans fuming over the club’s apparent lack of transfer planning.

Dissenting voices were few and far between, with Man Utd fans clearly growing restless as what is increasingly looking like a failed summer transfer window.
