Opinion: Manchester United could secure unreal bargain if they sign ‘electric’ Ismaila Sarr

We strongly believe that Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr would be a truly brilliant signing for Manchester United this summer.

90min have claimed that the Senegal international is a transfer target for United manager Erik ten Hag. The Dutchman desperately needs to bolster his attacking ranks at Old Trafford before the transfer window slams shut.

Cristiano Ronaldo clearly faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford is desperately low on confidence as he continues to struggle for form and fitness. On top of all that, Anthony Martial is out injured.

If United are to achieve a successful 2022/23 campaign on all fronts this season, Ten Hag desperately needs to bring in a top-class, versatile attacker – someone who can operate anywhere along the front line. And we believe that Ismaila Sarr could be the perfect man for the job.

Manchester United need to get Ismaila Sarr deal done asap

90min reckon that the 24-year-old Watford forward is an option for Ten Hag this summer. We believe that the Dutchman needs to get this one wrapped up as soon as possible.

The Senegalese ace possesses real quality and has frightening potential. Sarr would be a great signing for United in our view.

The 24-year-old has bagged 25 goals and 19 assists in 94 games for the Hornets. This season just gone, he bagged five goals and two assists in 22 Premier League games.

He has only chalked up 10 goals and eight assists in 50 Premier League games, and that may well be somewhat of a concern for Ten Hag. He’s well capable of improving those numbers though.

Sarr is a frightening talent with explosive pace. He has a really direct playing style and that combined with his speed would add so much to United’s set-up.

Described by well-renowned scouting website Breaking The Lines as an ‘electric’ winger, Sarr has so much to offer at the very highest level of the game.

What with his power and pace, Sarr would provide Te Hag with a completely different option on either wing and through the middle.

FootMercato recently claimed that Watford could sell Sarr for around €35 million (£29m) this summer. That seems like very good value to us.

And if Ten Hag brings Sarr to United in the summer transfer window, we believe that he would be a huge hit at Old Trafford.
