Man Utd transfer target says "it would be an honour" to play for Erik ten Hag's side

Man Utd transfer target says "it would be an honour" to play for Erik ten Hag's side

He's been wanted by Ten Hag since the summer.

Manchester United transfer target Cody Gakpo has said he would be "honoured" to play for the Premier League side.

Gakpo has been consistently linked to United since Erik ten Hag took charge in the summer.

The PSV forward has also been linked to many other European giants as his club form continues to impress.

He has managed 13 goals and 17 assists in 23 games this season and has earned his first call up to a World Cup squad for the Netherlands.

Gakpo: I'm ready to take that next step

In an interview with Nos, the PSV forward spoke about his future.

"I think at the end of this season I will be ready to take that step. I feel like I was already that way at the start of this season, but after this season I'm even more ready to take that next step."

He was then asked which club he would like to join: "Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, ​​Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. It would be an honour to play there, but I also have to see what kind of team would suit me best."

PSV manager and former United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy discussed Gakpo's future before his side played Arsenal in the Europa League last month.

He said: "It's not only Premier League clubs after him. His quality and form over the last three or four months has been exceptional. His stats and goals draw the attention of big clubs in European football.

"He is 23 and is focusing on his career with us at club level and having a great World Cup. He wants to continue that.

"When the time comes he will make decisions."
