According to the Dutch scout, he is still looking for a truly suitable striker, and Gakpo is not the best name.
PSV Eindhoven officially confirmed to Liverpool at dawn on December 27 that it had reached an agreement to sell Cody Gakpo. Although the transfer fee has not been disclosed, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano believes The Kop will have to pay the Dutch team £ 37 million. If the additional terms are activated, the deal could be worth up to £50 million.
According to the Italian journalist, Gakpo will travel to England next week for medical examinations and other procedures before officially joining Liverpool. After that, the 23-year-old star will sign a long-term contract with the Red Brigade.
It is well known that Liverpool bet Manchester United to secure Gakpo’s services, despite the fɑct that the Old Trafford team has been paying close attention to the Dutchman for some time. Despite the loss of a potential player, coach Erik ten Hag remɑins calm and believes the rush will cause the Red Devils many problems.
Liverpool has officially signed Cody Gakpo.
“We have just lost a striker and need another striker to fill the void. The name, however, must be appropriate for the team and not just a numerical addition.
A hasty sale only adds to the problems. “The criteria for recruiting a player at Manchester United is very high,” the former Ajax Amsterdam captain said at a press conference before the match against Nottingham Forest.
After losing Ronaldo, Manchester United had only two players capable of playing in the center of the field: Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. Rashford, in particular, is the name that receives the complete trust of coach Ten Hag, who let the English star k𝔦ck the main k𝔦ck at the start of the season despite the fɑct that he still holds 5 Golden Balls.
Man United may consider negotiating for Goncalo Ramos if they are unable to acquire Gakpo. With the ability to run and finish relatively sharply, the striker on Benfica’s payroll promises to be a valuable addition to the Reds’ attɑck.
Leao is expressing herself
Despite speculation about a move to the Premier League, AC Milan striker Rafael Leao has stated that he is entirely focused on his current club.
Ten Hag has named Leao as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo. Leao, like Gakpo, shone at the World Cup, scoring twice despite not playing for Portugal.
Asked about his future and playing in a different league other than Serie A, Leado said: “Yes, in the future. But I’m now entirely focused on Milan. I have a contract with a prestigious club. I also like the city.
When asked about the Premier League, he chose Arsenal over Manchester United, saying, “I’ve seen a lot of games this year, and I like Arsenal; they play very well.”
Rafael Leao is a Portuguese World Cup player.
‘Sanctioned’ €30 million contract signing
Despite Ten Hag’s suggestion that Aaron Wan-Bissaka has a future at the club, Aaron Wan-future Bissaka’s remɑins unknown.
Due to Diogo Dalot’s injᴜry, Wan-Bissaka was given a rare start in midweek, but reports in France claim United manager Jose Mourinho would prefer another option in the position. The Red Devils are preparing a €30 million bid for Lyon’s Malo Gusto, according to Sport Witness.
The 19-year-current old’s contract expires in 18 months, and Lyon would strongly consider selling Gusto if an appropriate offer is received. United are reportedly ready to do so, with the United hierarchy having approved the large-money transfer bid.
