Manchester United: Red Devils ‘looking at’ Cody Gakpo

Manchester United: Red Devils 'looking at' Cody Gakpo - Manchester United News

Manchester United are ‘looking at’ the possibility of signing PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gakpo in 2023, confirms Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Lowdown: Second time lucky?

The Dutchman still has four years remaining on his contract in the Eredivisie, but after being the standout performer over the last 12 months, has been attracting attention from across Europe.

The Premier League giants expressed a strong interest in the 23-year-old over the summer, and despite failing to land him, the Red Devils appear to be considering taking a second bite of the cherry.

The Latest: United monitoring Gakpo

Taking to Twitter, Sheth confirmed that United are monitoring Gakpo ahead of a potential move, whilst also delivering an update on the club’s pursuit of targets in another area of the pitch.

“Manchester United looking at forwards – including Cody Gakpo – and right-backs, but ‘significant chance’ no incomings in January.

“Right-back incoming likely to depend on Wan-Bissaka future. United conscious of complying with FFP. Loan market being explored too.”

The Verdict: Get it done…

Gakpo has been dubbed ‘De Herdgang’s Finest’ by Jacek Kulig and “sensational” by sports writer Thierry Nyann , and should the opportunity to sign him arise, this is a no-brainer of a deal to complete.

The winger has already clocked up a remarkable 30 goal contributions in just 24 appearances across all competitions this season and is averaging 3.6 shots per league game.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure has left a huge void in the final third that needs filling, and Gakpo would be the perfect man to come in and do just that.
