Man United have once again received hints to sign the former Chelsea striker if they cannot land Cody Gakbo next month, and former coach Erik ten Hag will be given a greater chance of securing a sensational move next summer, according to a report.
The Red Devils’ main focus in January remains the signing of Cody Gakow. The Netherlands international, 23, can reportedly be bought for less than £50m.
The telegraph It reported that Man United had settled on an opening bid of £43m. If it is brought to the table, they seem to have a good chance of seeing it accepted.
What’s more, woman Conversations already claimed Opened between United and Jakpo club, PSV Eindhoven. In addition, the Dutch club is asking for a high-profile sale to avoid “financial collapse” and personal terms would not be an issue, according to the newspaper.
All signs clearly point to Gakpo lining up at Old Trafford next month. However, it looked like United would land Frenkie de Jong for as long as last summer and the Barcelona star stayed put in the end.
Furthermore, as Gakpo is primarily a left winger, one school of thought suggests that if United sign Gakpo, they would then need to sign a more high-profile attacking midfielder next summer anyway.
Regardless, until Gakpo signs on, the rumor mill will continue to spin. According to ESPNHowever, if Gakpo does not escape United, a move for former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata could form quickly.
Morata’s loan could lead to a huge summer raid
Signing Morata will not get United fans excited. However, the Spanish veteran can be an ingenious addition on many levels.
First, United were known to overspend last summer on deals for the likes of Casemiro and Anthony. The Red Devils wanted to ensure Ten Hag got off to an eye-catching start and ended up worth more than £200m in total.
ESPN I mentioned earlier that Morata could be available on loan from Atletico Madrid and as such, he wouldn’t cost a fee.
A six-month signing would tie United until the summer, at which point they could launch an all-out attack for an even bigger prize.
Bigger names on the horizon for Manchester United?
Man United equalized Initial links with Kylian Mbappe who had previously expressed his displeasure with his treatment in Paris.
Mbappe will represent the ultimate coup and become the most recognizable soccer star in the world once Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo retire.
It would obviously be difficult to make a deal with a player of his caliber, although there are other options.
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is still linked to Manchester United, as is Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez. Inter will listen to the great offers of Argentina next summer And they wrestle with how to balance the books.
But Martinez has failed at the World Cup, while Osimhen has been almost unplayable at Napoli this season.
Napoli currently lead the league by eight points and are chasing their first league title since the days of Diego Maradona.
Understandably, they aren’t ready to entertain any January exes. However, in the summer it will be a different story.
Osimhen works as hard with the ball as he does with it and will be able to withstand the physical challenges of a tougher Premier League. a The transfer fee is around £90m It was recently promoted in the Italian press.
Of course, Gakpo still remains United’s primary focus. However, if ESPN True, a loan move for Morata which then leads to the signing of a larger contract than Gakpo next summer could happen if discussions with PSV break down in some way.
