Fifth Signing Deal Done – Manchester United Agree Personal Terms With PSV Star: An Exciting Option For Ten Hag?

According to The Sun, Manchester United are interested in signing PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo during the current transfer window, as Erik Ten Hag tries to bolster his offensive options.

 

According to the source, Manchester United have already agreed on personal terms with the Eredivisie star, but PSV will only sell if their asking price of £42 million is satisfied. The current bid from the English club is in the area of £34 million, which falls short of the Dutch club’s assessment of the 23-year-old attacker.

 

‘The rumors that Gakpo is on his way to Manchester United are becoming more and more persistent. Despite the fact that coach Erik ten Hag’s club is struggling and that it does not appear to be the greatest destination for PSV’s top player, according to De Mos. “The proper moment has arrived. You will have made 100 million euros in one day if you qualify for the Champions League on Wednesday and sell Gakpo. You’re not going to let that go. You can’t blame Gakpo either; you can earn five times as much and play for the world’s top club.”‘ – The translated version of a report from the Dutch newspaper Eindhovens Dagblad.

 

An Exciting Possibility for Ten Hag?

Cody Gakpo, who came through the ranks at PSV Eindhoven, made his senior team debut as an injury-time replacement in a 3-1 victory over Feyenoord on February 25, 2018. His performances improved steadily with each game, until he burst onto the limelight in the 2019-20 season, contributing fourteen goals in 25 games. In the 2021/22 season, the seven-time Netherlands international scored twelve goals and had as many assists, helping his team finish second in the league rankings.

 

Gakpo is typically a left winger, but he can also play as a striker or right winger when needed.

 

Manchester United is in desperate need of reinforcements, particularly in attack, and Gakpo fits the bill well. He is 23 years old and has plenty of time on his side. As a result, the board should make every effort to obtain his signature in the coming days.
