  • The technical director was there to keep an eye on Hornets’ Ismaila Sarr

  • The Red Devils are eager to land a number of signings over the line in the window

Manchester United manager Darren Fletcher was at the Hawthorns on Monday night to watch Watford’s Ismaila Sarr score one of the goals of the season.

The Senegalese winger made headlines when he broke the deadlock from his own half just ten minutes into the Championship game, having caught West Brom’s David Button off his line.

The goal could now prove to have a bigger impact than just a viral clip on social media, with United eyeing a summer move for the 24-year-old.

Fletcher, who spent 13 seasons playing at Old Trafford before becoming manager this year, was sent to the West Midlands to continue United’s assessment of the Watford winger.

The Red Devils have made it clear they are not done with their summer transfer business and are compiling a list of names they hope to secure before the end of the window.

Sarr has done his chances of a potential move to Manchester no harm, with his sensational goal putting potential suitors on red alert.

In the match, the Senegalese international collected the ball and saw Button standing outside his penalty area. Without a second thought, he unleashed a remarkable effort that left the goalkeeper rather embarrassed.

Watford would likely be reluctant to sell their number 23 this summer as they look for an immediate return to the Premier League.

Sarr will be seen as an important part of their plans this year, having registered 13 goals and five assists in their 2020-21 campaign, the last time they were involved in the Championship.

In total, he has scored 25 goals in 94 appearances since his record move from Rennes in 2019 and was part of Senegal’s AFCON-winning side earlier this calendar year.

Sarr is not the only player topping United’s list of transfer targets, with the club also making moves to sign Adrian Rabiot from Juventus and Marko Arnautovic from Bologna this week.

Rabiot’s move looks set to come to an end, while his pursuit of Arnautovic appears to have come to an end following the Italian club’s assessment of the Austrian.

Their desperate search for a striker has also seen them register an interest in PSV winger Cody Gakpo this week.
