Cody Gakpo has made it no secret that he wants to join Manchester United, and it looks like the club is considering making a move for the PSV winger. Gakpo’s agent has reportedly been in discussions with Manchester United about a potential transfer, and it is believed that the club will have to pay a fee of around €55-60m to secure the services of the Dutch international.
Gakpo has been in excellent form this season, scoring 9 goals and assisting 12 in just 14 games for PSV. He has also been impressive in the Europa League, with 3 goals and 2 assists in 5 appearances. His performances have not gone unnoticed, and he was called up to the Netherlands national team for the 2022 World Cup, where he scored 3 goals in 5 appearances.
It is clear that Gakpo has the talent and potential to make a big impact at Manchester United, but the club will have to decide if they are willing to pay the €55-60m fee to bring him to Old Trafford. Gakpo is still young, only 23, and has a lots of room for development, so he could prove to be a valuable investment for the club in the long run.
Regardless of what happens, it is clear that Gakpo is a player to keep an eye on, and his future at Manchester United will be worth watching closely. Whether he ends up joining the club or not, Gakpo looks set to have a bright future in the game, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up next.
Transfermarkt currently values Gakpo at €60.00m, usually clubs have to overpay the value but with Gakpo’s contract running out, this is the perfect time for Manchester United or another club to get a great value deal.
