Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

Manchester United should be livid with the fact that Liverpool are securing the signing of Ten Hag’s big target, Cody Gakpo.

In the summer, the Red Devils agreed personal terms with the Dutch international but did not have the funds left to complete his transfer (The Athletic).

Moreover, last month, even Football Insider revealed that the Old Trafford club reached an agreement in principle with the PSV Eindhoven playmaker.

However, the Eredivisie side have now confirmed that they have agreed a record deal to sell the 23-year-old star to Liverpool, much to the despair of the United supporters.

Last week, The Mirror reported that Man Utd have stolen a march to sign the Oranje star. However, it is the Merseysiders who have moved in to steal the signing.

As per The Guardian, the transfer of Gakpo to the Anfield club could rise to as high as £50million.

Man Utd and Liverpool are in a close battle to earn Champions League qualification for the next season and our arch rivals have handed us a major blow in the transfer market.

The reigning Dutch Player of the Year is the player we needed to improve the attack, especially the left wing position where Sancho has failed to impress since joining from Dortmund last season.

In all fairness, it will hurt to see Gakpo excel at Liverpool. In your view, who should Ten Hag sign to reinforce the squad next month?
