Manchester United ready to sign £43.5 million player as Ronaldo replacement
According to 90Min, Manchester United are set to sign Cody Gakpo, a PS43.5million-rated player
in January as Cristiano Rojo's replacement. According to reports Erik ten Hag is pushing for a deal in January to bring PSV Eindhoven ahead.
Manchester United wants to end Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract after his explosive interview with Piers Morison, as reported by Sky Sports.
The Portuguese star criticised the club's administration and also attacked Erik Ten Hag and its owners.
Cristiano Ronaldo took aim at Ralf Rangnick, former manager, as well as Wayne Rooney, for criticizing them.
Ronaldo's departure means that the Red Devils will need to find a new attacker. Gakpo, as per 90Min, would be their priority target.
90Min says Manchester United will renew their interest in the versatile attacker in January. Gakpo was a firebrand for PSV this campaign.
He scored 13 goals in 24 games and provided 17 assists across competitions. He was primarily a left-sided forward for Ruud Van Nistelrooy.
but he can also play on the right flank and as a center-forward. The Dutchman can also be a number 10, and has excelled in that role.
PSV's youth ranks saw the attacker make 159 senior appearances. He scored 55 goals and created 50 more.
