Cody Gakpo news

Gakpo back on Manchester United radar

Manchester United are pushing to sign PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo during the winter transfer window.

The Red Devils were keen on landing the 23-year-old earlier this summer, but could not afford him after the huge outlay on Antony.

As a result, they had no choice but to withdraw their pursuit, but Rudy Galetti claims that the club are already planning a fresh move.

The United board are willing to bolster the frontline in the New Year and are prepared to revive their interest in landing Gakpo.

Gakpo has been a revelation for Eindhoven this campaign. He has notched up 13 goals and 16 assists from just 22 appearances.

He is likely to pursue a big-club move following the World Cup, but the big question is whether United can afford his signature.

The hierarchy are reluctant to spend big after the huge spending spree over the summer. It could take around €50-60m to land him.

Aside from United, Arsenal and Tottenham are also interested in signing Gakpo, who will be with the Netherlands at the World Cup.
