Friday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Jadon Sancho, Ismaila Sarr, Ivan Perisic

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Friday, September 18.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester United eye possible reinforcements.

The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in the final days of the winter window but are still expected to be active in the summer as they aim to restore their former glories.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Friday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'weighing up move for Ismaila Sarr'

Watford attacker Ismaila Sarr has reportedly emerged as a potential target for Manchester United.

The Red Devils continue to be linked with Jadon Sancho, but it remains to be seen whether the club are able to agree a deal with Borussia Dortmund before the transfer window closes on October 5.

According to The Independent, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are currently weighing up alternatives to the England international and have identified Sarr as an option.

The report claims that the Senegal international, who is also believed to be a target for Liverpool, could be available for £30m following Watford's relegation to the Championship.

Sarr joined the Hornets from Rennes last summer and impressed during his first season in the Premier League, scoring five goals and providing six assists in 28 appearances.

The 22-year-old still has four years left to run on his contract at Vicarage Road.

Manchester United to wait until final week of window to make Jadon Sancho move?

Manchester United are reportedly holding off from making an official approach for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho until the final week of the transfer window.

The England international remains United's top attacking target for the remaining three weeks of the summer window, despite the emergence of cheaper alternatives.

However, Dortmund have made clear that they will not sell Sancho unless their valuation - thought to be around £108m - is met in full.

According to the Transfer Window Podcast, though, United believe that BVB will eventually give in and sell the 20-year-old for a lower fee in the final days of the window.

As the report indicates, that would leave United with all their eggs in one basket as they would have little time to find an alternative should Dortmund refuse to budge.

Sancho, under contract at the Westfalenstadion for another three years, scored for the German club in their 5-0 DFB-Pokal win at Duisburg on Monday.
