According to reports, Manchester United is in talks with the agents of Cody Gakpo and they seem to be swooping in for the PSV star. As Cristiano Ronaldo has suffered a major blow as he searched for his new club since Bayern Munich ruled out the prospect of signing the star player.
Louis van Gaal chose the 23-year-old for the Netherlands World Cup team and has been able to score in three group stage fixtures in each of his sides.
Gakpo’s latest goal arrived as he nets against Qatar for his side in the first half. The forward player picked the ball outside the area before driving past many defenders from the opposite team and firing a left-footed spot into the net’s bottom-right corner. No doubt, Gakpo was extremely delighted with the goal as it took him to the level of Kylian Mbappe of France or Enner Valencia of Ecuador as the top goal scorers at World Cup 2022.
On the domestic sphere, he has been linked to Arsenal, Liverpool, and Tottenham but a summer move to Leeds failed and might be resurrected in January. However, PSV received a bid for Man United as confirmed by the director of football of the club, Marcel Brands disclosed to ESPN NL. According to reports, the Red Devils are all set to finalize an agreement with PSV for signing the player. Since then, the forward has revealed how close the move became successful in the summer.
