Man United are closing in on Cody Gakpo after reaching an agreement on personal terms with the forward’s agents. While there is no official offer on the table yet, Man United have been well informed about his €50m-plus price tag.
The Red Devils have been making waves in the transfer market in the last week and could be on the verge of ending the window on a high note. Man United still have plenty of work to do, with the Dutch manager continuing to search for options that significantly improve his squad.
It has been a good few days being a Man United fan after the club secured the high-profile signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid and beat their traditional rivals, Liverpool, at Old Trafford on Monday night. The optimism inside Old Trafford is growing, and the Red Devils board now needs to get a few additions over the line, including a new winger.
Ajax winger Antony is being touted as their main target, with reports insisting Man United could make a €100m bid soon. If that happens, the chances of the 22-year-old winger arriving increase exponentially. But, the Red Devils are also looking at Cody Gakpo.
Man United are hopeful of signing the PSV forward, even if they secure Antony, as per reports. Cody is reportedly valued at more than €50m, which the Red Devils are aware of after initial approaches.
