Man Utd ready to move for Gakpo but PSV double their asking price to £50m


PSV have doubled their price for Cody Gakpo after scoring three goals for the Netherlands at the World Cup.

Cody Gakpo’s reputation has grown exponentially during the World Cup having netted three goals for the Netherlands in the group stage.

Manchester United, managed by former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, were interested in the 23-year-old in the off-season but no move materialised.

The Red Devils have since parted ways with five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo and are keen to strengthen their promotion options.

Manchester United are ready to make a move for Dutch striker Cody Gakpo in January, according to The Sun.

However, Gakpa’s Dutch club PSV will demand £50m (€58m) for him, according to The Mirror, which is double what they wanted in the off-season.

If the asking price is prohibitive, United may decide to shift their focus to Milan’s Rafael Leao, who is under contract until 2024.
