Manchester United dominated and defeated Liverpool last night to register their first win of the new campaign and in doing so, we have moved above our arch rivals.
The squad still needs strengthening and reports suggest that the Old Trafford outfit are close to completing a contract agreement with Cody Gakpo.
According to Eindhovens Dagblad, Man Utd have ‘more or less’ agreed personal terms with the representatives of the 23-year-old, who will make the final decision on his future after tomorrow’s game against Rangers.
For now, he wants to focus on helping PSV Eindhoven qualify for the group stages of the Champions League.
The Dutch source claim the Red Devils have a very good chance of signing the Netherlands international as he wants to play under the guidance of Erik ten Hag.
It is stated that Man Utd will make an official offer ‘after Wednesday’.
ED claim the Eredivisie giants want at least £42.2million (50 million euros) to sell their prized asset before the deadline.
Gakpo was fantastic in the last campaign and has started the current season in brilliant fashion as well. Under the management of Ruud van Nistelrooy, the Oranje star has directly contributed in 7 goals in just 6 starts thus far.
Last night, Sancho and Rashford found the net vs Liverpool but they still need to find consistency and Ten Hag needs quality in depth as far as the attack is concerned.
In your view, should Man Utd submit an official bid of £42.2million to sign Cody Gakpo?
