TBRFootball says that Manchester United is thinking about making a £25 million offer for Ismaila Sarr, a winger who is currently with Watford. It is said that Leeds United is also interested in signing Sarr. Erik ten Hag, who is in charge of the Red Devils, seems happy about the idea of finding a new attacker.
In the first game of the season, on August 7 against Brighton & Hove Albion, the Dutch manager saw that his team had trouble scoring goals. The Seagulls won the game 2-1, and the only goal that United scored was an own goal that the Seagulls scored in the second half.
Marcus Rashford hasn’t been the same player since he came back from a shoulder injury he got the year before. This makes me worry about his level of play right now.
United has given up on trying to sign striker Marko Arnautovic from Bologna because the club’s fans have been so against the idea. It looks like United are now ready to compete with Leeds to sign Sarr, who scored an amazing goal against West Bromwich Albion on August 8 from the halfway line. One of the best parts of that game was Sarr’s goal.
The name of the Senegalese attacker has been linked to a move to Old Trafford in the past. In the previous season, he played 22 games for the Hornets and scored five goals and set up two others.
Manchester United fans, who were expecting the club to make a move for Arnautovic, will likely be relieved by the decision not to pursue a deal. Instead, it looks like the Red Devils are looking for a quick winger to join the team, and Sarr is the perfect fit for that role.
Cody Gakpo, who plays for PSV Eindhoven, is also said to be on the Red Devils’ radar, so he isn’t the only winger being linked to the club. InsideFutbol says that the Dutch star player was the “Player of the Year” in the Eredivisie at the end of the previous season.
Leeds is also in the running for the player, which is interesting. During the 2017–2018 season, he played 46 times for PSV in all competitions and scored 21 goals and set up 15 others, which is a lot.
On the one hand, there is a young winger from the Netherlands who has done very well in the Eredivisie. On the other hand, no one knows if he will be able to play at the level of the Premier League.
Sarr, on the other hand, is a young player from Senegal who wants to play football at the same level as it is played in Europe.
He has won in the Premier League before, and he stood out when he played for a team that had a hard time the year before and was eventually relegated.
