Close Manchester United must pay £30million to sign Ismaila Sarr from Watford, reports say.

In a surprising twist, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking at the forward with the club struggling to land Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. Liverpool are also keen, though may not have the finances required. Manchester United have spent most of the transfer window chasing a deal for Sancho. But, with Borussia Dortmund refusing to let the 20-year-old leave for anything less than £108million, they're getting ready to change tact. United are looking at alternatives to the England international with the likes of Kingsley Coman, Douglas Costa and Ivan Perisic all emerging as potential targets.

Yet the Independent claim they're interested in signing Sarr from Watford. The 22-year-old has been linked with Liverpool but, with the Reds poised to spend big on Thiago Alcantara, may not have the resources required to make a deal happen. And the report says United will have to pay a fee of £30m to land the Senegalese forward, with initial enquiries already made with the Championship side.
