Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, and Gakpo are represented by the same agency, and ten Hag is eager to add the 23-year-old to his assault.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is eager to bolster his assault by acquiring Cody Gakpo, who is valued at £35 million and scored 21 goals in 47 games last season; Benjamin Sesko, a striker who has since joined RB Leipzig, was missed by United, and they just dropped their interest in Marko Arnautovic of Bologna.
Gakpo, which is being coached by former United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, has emerged as a more durable answer to the dearth of strong forward alternatives.
The Netherlands international is a product of PSV’s academy and scored 21 goals in 47 games last season.
PSV’s stance has been if a club with strong financial resources come in, it is implausible to retain their star players.
