In the transaction involving Cody Gakpo, it is stated that PSV imposed severe terms not just on Man Utd but also on other major teams. The absence of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United has prompted the club to make it a priority to find another striker of comparable caliber. The outstanding play that Cody Gakpo displayed in the 2022 World Cup brought him to the attention of MU. In addition to being one of the most impressive players overall in the competition, he scored three goals for the Dutch side.
Gakpo likewise did not try to conceal the fact that he planned to go to Old Trafford.
In a recent interview, the striker who was born in 1999 stated unequivocally that he was overjoyed to learn that Man Utd was interested in signing him.
The owner team PSV is aware of the challenges involved in retaining Gakpo for the remainder of this season.
For this reason, PSV proposed a transfer fee of at least fifty million euros for the Gakpo deal. In addition to satisfying the number requirements, Man Utd and the clubs that wish to gain this star’s signature must also be accompanied by two more conditions in order to be considered.
To be more specific, a source who spoke with journalist Rik Elfrink indicated that PSV will favor the payment method and timing of payment of the counterparty when they are in the midst of negotiations.
This indicates that Man Utd needs to move fast to find a solution.
Instead of accepting payments made on an annual basis in installments, PSV will only accept a one-time payment of 50 million euros instantly.
The request that PSV has made is very specific, and it is vital to hold off and see if Man Utd or any other teams can fulfill it.
In recent transactions, Man Utd frequently negotiates to make payments in installments, as opposed to making a single payment.
Man Utd has significant financial potential, but because of their desire to sign the most possible number of talented rookies, they have found that the installment negotiation is the most productive method. In addition to signing a striker, the Red Devils are interested in adding a right-back to their roster. Since the start of the current campaign, Diogo Dalot has been forced to play too much at the right back position. It is anticipated that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be put up for sale on the Eastern Market as he does not satisfy the conditions set forth by coach Erik ten Hag.
