Manchester United Line Up £43M January Transfer of Cody Gakpo

Cody Gakpo is ETH's number one target at the moment

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Dutch winger Cody Gakpo in the January transfer window, with rumors suggesting that the club could pay as much as £43m for the player. The 22-year-old has been in impressive form for PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie, scoring 13 goals and providing 16 assists in all competitions so far this season.

Gakpo would be a welcome addition to Manchester United‘s attacking options, with the club struggling for goals and creativity in recent months. The winger is known for his pace and dribbling ability, as well as his eye for goal, and would bring a new dimension to United’s attack.

Under manager Erik ten Hag, Gakpo would likely fit in as a right winger, with the option to play on either side of the pitch. However, the £43m price tag being rumored for Gakpo may be a sticking point for United, with the club reportedly looking to tighten their belts in the transfer market during the ongoing sale of the club.

Gakpo’s performances for PSV this season have certainly caught the eye, but it remains to be seen whether United are willing to spend such a large fee on a player who is relatively unproven at the highest level.

Despite this, Gakpo could be seen as a good investment for United, given his potential to develop into a top-class player. The winger has already made his debut for the Netherlands national team, played well for the Dutch at 2022 World Cup, and has all the attributes to become a key player for both club and country in the future.

In terms of United’s transfer activity in January, Gakpo could be seen as a replacement for winger Jadon Sancho, who has struggled to make an impact since his move to Old Trafford. Sancho has struggled with form and injuries, and a move away from the club could be on the cards, with Gakpo potentially coming in as his replacement.

Overall, the potential transfer of Cody Gakpo to Manchester United is one that would certainly add some much-needed attacking quality to the club. The £43m price tag may be a concern, but if Gakpo can live up to his potential and help bring success to Old Trafford, it could prove to be a worthwhile investment in the long run.

My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
