Cody Gakpo sends message to Manchester United as rumored transfer looms

Cody Gakpo sends message to Manchester United as rumored transfer looms

The Dutch attacker has sent a clear message to Manchester United  amid rumors of an imminent transfer. 

Cody Gakpo, a reported transfer target of Manchester United, has given the Premier League club a strong message with his World Cup performance thus far

In the Netherlands’ 1-1 draw with Ecuador on Friday, the 23-year-old forward contributed to his outstanding goalscoring form amid rumors of an imminent transfer to Old Trafford.

The PSV star has been a driving force for the Dutch national team at the World Cup in Qatar, demonstrating his value by continuing his superb goal-scoring form.

In the Oranje’s opening match against Senegal, the winger scored a late goal to put his team in the driver’s seat before Davy Klaassen increased the lead.

On Friday against Ecuador, Gakpo scored his team’s lone goal in a 1-1 draw with the South Americans. The goal increased the Dutchman’s season total to 17 goals in 31 appearances. He has also recorded 16 assists within the same time frame.

In the wake of Gakpo’s performance against Ecuador, rumors of a winter transfer to Manchester United have resurrected. As a result of the mutually-agreed-upon departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Old Trafford club is anticipated to acquire another forward midway through the season.

In the summer, United manager Erik ten Hag initiated discussions with the player about a prospective transfer before opting for Ajax’s Antony instead. There is now a strong indication that the Dutch manager would pursue the forward, with other elite European clubs tracking his development closely.

According to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, a transfer is close as Manchester United are eager to “finalize an agreement” for the winger Gakpo in the upcoming weeks.
