As we announced yesterday, Leeds would be close to an agreement to sign Ismaïla Sarr. But an essential detail would delay the deal since the Peacocks must free up a place in their workforce.
Despite being watched by Manchester United last weekend against West Brom, Leeds would be the closest club to signing Ismaïla Sarr. After losing Raphina who joined FC Barcelona, the Peacocks ticked the Senegalese striker to replace the Brazilian. Reverse fortune, since the Senegalese had been replaced by the Brazilian striker when he left Rennes for Watford in 2019.
In recent hours, the English press agrees that the Peacocks are no longer far from an agreement with the Hornets for the signing of Sarr. But, if the deal has not yet been completed, it is also because of a decisive detail that Leeds should resolve upstream. The residents of Elland Road must free up a place in their workforce to be able to accommodate Izo Sarr, as confirmed by Santi Aouna.
🚨 Two important Leeds-Watford files:
■ João Pedro 🇧🇷. Leeds want a loan, Watford a transfer
■ Ismaïla Sarr 🇸🇳. Verbal agreement almost found between clubs and with the player. But his arrival is conditional on a departure
