Man United remain keen on Cody Gakpo, could make January move

Man United are still keen on signing Cody Gakpo, with a potential January move being talked up.

Over the summer, Manchester United searched far and wide in the hunt to bring in new attacking players. Eventually, the Red Devils got their man in the form of Antony.

The Brazil international always felt like Erik ten Hag’s top priority for that position, though other options were considered; including Cody Gakpo.

PSV Eindhoven’s top star was linked pretty frequently with a Reds switch, with the player seeming like he’d be intrigued by a move to Manchester. However, United never took their interest further.

Well, it seems as though Gakpo is still on the radar. It’s FootballTransfers with the claim. They say that United are amongst the sides who ‘remain keen’ on signing the 23-year-old attacker. Southampton and Everton are also credited with an interest.

The Dutchman has started the Eredivisie season superbly, scoring ten times in thirteen matches so far.

FootballTransfers state that there is an ‘expectancy’ a move to the Premier League will come to fruition in January, should this immense form continue.

OTF’s verdict on a Man United move for Cody Gakpo in January

There’s no doubting Gakpo’s ability, though he’s still a little rough around the edges. I am getting major Memphis Depay vibes from this possible transfer, which leaves me worried.

United would have to fork out big money to bring in Gakpo, who wouldn’t start every single game for the Red Devils. It’d be a project signing more than anything. With so many holes still in the squad, is that really what United need right now?

This feels like a move United should revisit in the distant future, rather than imminently.
