The Lowdown: ‘Agreement in principle’
The 23-year-old’s future has been a hot topic of conversation during his performances in Qatar, with recent reports suggesting that the Red Devils have reached an ‘agreement in principle’ with the forward.
A further update has now emerged on Gakpo’s immediate future, which could be further good news for Old Trafford officials.
The Latest: Gakpo transfer update
Football Insider‘s Wayne Veysey provided an update regarding United and Gakpo on Thursday morning.
He revealed that the Red Devils are increasingly confident of signing the player in January instead of next summer and are in regular contact with the 23-year-old’s camp.
The Verdict: Exciting
He has continued to excel on the world stage for his country, so knowing that he could be on the move to Manchester in the coming weeks is hugely exciting for the Old Trafford faithful.
Erik ten Hag would be handed another versatile attacking option if a winter move for Gakpo is finalised, something which could be crucial in the second half of the season following Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent exit.
