Manchester United were unable to secure the signing of Cody Gakpo in the summer transfer window but will move again soon.
PSV Eindhoven were demanding a fee of £53million (ED) for their prized asset and The Athletic reported that the Red Devils did not even make an offer for the Dutch international.

However, as per an exclusive story covered by Football Insider earlier in the day, the Old Trafford club made a bid of £25million to sign the winger but it was turned down by the Eredivisie club.
The news source have mentioned that Man United are preparing a new offer to finally sign Gakpo.
The PL giants believe they are in a good position to lure the Netherlands star next year even if his market value grows by performing brilliantly at the World Cup.
Last season, not even a single Man Utd winger managed to directly contribute in 10 goals. On the other hand, the 23-year-old Oranje star directly contributed in over 30 goals last season and is already close to the 20-mark this term.
At the moment, Ten Hag does not have ample depth in the wide attacking positions. There is no one good enough to cover for Jandon Sancho and Antony.
The situation with Greenwood is still uncertain and Elanga is just okay. Therefore, the Dutch boss must splash the cash to further improve the flanks.
In your opinion, should Man Utd offer £53million to finally sign Gakpo?
