Man United enquire about Ismaila Sarr & bid for Alex Telles


With just a few days left of the current transfer window, Manchester United look to be stepping up their attempts to add more fresh faces to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

Man United interested in Sarr

First up, with a move for long-term target Jadon Sancho seemingly becoming increasingly unlikely, United appear to be stepping up their interest in other wingers.

The likes of Ousmane Dembele, Kingsley Coman and Douglas Costa have previously been named as potential Sancho alternatives

However, a fresh attacker has now seemingly landed himself on Manchester United’s radar.

Said player is Ismaila Sarr of Watford.

The African has been plying his trade at Vicarage Road for just over a year now.

The Hornets secured the winger’s services from Ligue 1 outfit Stade Rennais for a fee believed to be around the £27m mark.

Since moving to England, Sarr has proven pretty successful when it comes to goal contributions.

The African featured in 28 of Watford’s 38 Premier League outings this past season.

Across these appearances, Sarr managed to net five and assist six, a solid record considering how poorly Watford performed for the majority of the campaign.

Now, according to the Telegraph, Man United have enquired about Sarr – who they say is rated at £40m.

It is added that Watford would only consider permanent deals for the wide-man.

Man United bid for Telles

The same report from the Telegraph has also provided some insight into Man United’s alleged pursuit of Porto left-back, Alex Telles.

As we covered, on Monday, United are understood to have agreed personal terms with the Brazilian, though it was also believed at the time that the Red Devils were still in talks with Porto over a fee.

Now, as per the Telegraph, the Manchester powerhouse have made an official bid for the stopper.

However, said bid is said to fall significantly short of Porto’s valuation.
