Manchester United ready to make January bid for Dutch star

Cody Gakpo news

Gakpo on his way to Man Utd?

Manchester United are ready to make a January bid to sign PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo, according to The Sun.

The Red Devils were interested in signing the 23-year-old in the last transfer window, but ended their pursuit after the purchase of Antony.

However, they are now prepared to re-enter the race and The Sun report that the Dutchman could be prised away for around £50 million.

Gakpo has already given the green light for the transfer to Old Trafford and it is added that he would like to operate as the marksman.

The attacker has played on the left wing or the number 10 role for PSV, but wants to develop himself into a number nine with United.

The Red Devils could easily oblige to his demands, considering they are looking to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo‘s exit.

Anthony Martial has been injury-prone for most of the campaign and Gakpo could establish himself as the preferred centre-forward.
