Man Utd keep Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr on standby

Manchester United could yet move for Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr before tomorrow's deadline.

Sky Sports says United have identified Watford's Ismaila Sarr as a cheaper alternative to Jadon Sancho after failing with a £90million bid for the Borussia Dortmund star.

The Red Devils have been desperate to sign Sancho this summer, yet Dortmund are refusing to budge on their £108million asking price.

Real Madrid outcast Gareth Bale was also believed to be on their radar, only for the Welshman to seal a sensational return to Tottenham after growing tired of waiting for them to make a decision.

United have now turned their attention to Sarr after holding talks with Watford over a potential deal.
