Man Utd set for more transfer woe as Leeds ‘close to agreeing transfer fee’ with Watford for Ismaila Sarr

    MANCHESTER UNITED are set to suffer a further transfer blow as target Ismaila Sarr reportedly closes in on a switch to Leeds United.

    Sarr, 24, has previously been linked with an Old Trafford switch and his wonder goal this week led to fresh speculation they were chasing him again.

    We reported how United could step up their hunt after pulling out of a controversial move for Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic.

    However, Get French Football claims that Leeds “are close to an agreement” to sign the winger.

    Sarr is starting his fourth season at Watford following last term’s relegation to the Championship.

    He has 25 goals in 94 games for his club, as well as ten strikes for Senegal on the international stage.

    This fresh update could mean that new United manager Erik ten Hag’s attacking crisis continues.

    Cristiano Ronaldo wants to quit Old Trafford, while Anthony Martial is out injured.

    United were hoping to land versatile Arnautovic to provide cover.

    But they have now ended their interest after having a bid rejected by Bologna.
