Manchester United have reportedly ‘largely agreed on personal terms’ with the entourage of PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo.
The Lowdown: Casemiro in
The Red Devils officially unveiled Casemiro as a new Manchester United player on Monday evening.
The holding midfielder took to the Old Trafford pitch prior to the 2-1 win over Liverpool, with a deal thought to be costing the club an initial £60m. It now looks as if United officials are working on their next move, with a busy end to the transfer window in store.
The Latest: Gakpo next?
They claim that United ‘largely agreed on personal terms’ with the PSV winger, who shares the same agency as Erik ten Hag.
Fabrizio Romano has also said that the 23-year-old ‘would be prepared to accept Manchester United’ and are ‘waiting’ to see if there will be an official proposal.
Where will United finish this season?
8th or lower
The Verdict: Antony alternative?
Gakpo, who has been called a ‘sensational player‘ by Football Oranje editor and Dutch football expert Michael Bell, could well be a shrewd alternative to Ajax winger Antony.
The Red Devils are still thought to be keen on the Brazilian and even made a £67.9m offer, so you’d expect that the PSV gem could cost less.
The Dutchman has scored 47 senior goals for club and country and enjoyed his best season in front of goal last year, and with personal terms seemingly agreed, a transfer could go through relatively quickly compared to one for Antony.
