Cody Gakpo has already clarified his stance over Manchester United transfer as 'agreement finalised'

Manchester United transfer target Cody Gakpo has already clarified his position over a potential move to Old Trafford.

Gakpo, 23, has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, with several clubs interested in the PSV winger.

Arsenal, Southampton and Leeds United are all said to be admirers of the Netherlands international.

Meanwhile, United manager Erik ten Hag held talks with Gakpo in the summer over a possible bid, before the club signed Antony from Ajax instead.


Gakpo continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford after making an impressive start to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

He scored for the Netherlands in their 2-0 win over Senegal on Monday and also opened the scoring in Friday's match against Ecuador.


According to Italian journalist Rudy Galetti, United still plan on signing Gakpo and are set to "finalise an agreement" for the winger ahead of the January window.


It is claimed that United could sign him for as little as £25m.

Gakpo: I spoke to Ten Hag

Gakpo has previously confirmed he held talks with Ten Hag and was disappointed when a move to Old Trafford failed to materialise.

"I was close to leaving, I spoke to Erik ten Hag a few times at Manchester United," said Gakpo.


"In the end the deal didn’t go through, which was a shame, for me and my development, and because Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, but also for PSV, because to transfer a player to Manchester United is a good thing for the club.

"It ended about a week before the end of the transfer window and in that week I had to decide if I would go to Leeds or Southampton.

"In the end I stayed, but it was a stressful period."
