Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is pushing the club hierarchy to make a move for PSV winger Cody Gakpo in the January transfer window, according to 90 minutes. The report said that Ten Hag wanted to sign the 23-year-old Dutch international from his former club Ajax in the summer of 2022 and remain enthusiastic about him.
Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer at United, having quit the former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners this month following an exploitative interview with TV presenter Piers Morgan in which he hammered Ten Hag and the club’s current owners. The Red Devils need to recruit a new striker to replace the Portuguese international.
Gakpo is having a wonderful Qatar 2022 World Cup campaign for the Netherlands and has scored three goals in three appearances. The 23-year-old has scored nine goals and provided one assist in the Eredivisie and has scored three goals and provided two assists in the UEFA Europa League.
