Cody Gakpo declares Manchester United ‘honour’ as he issues transfer update

Gakpo has been heavily linked with a move to Man Utd since the summer transfer window as the PSV man speaks out once more..

PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo has said that “it would be an honour” to play for Manchester United as he speaks out over his future once again.

Erik ten Hag was keen on bringing Gakpo to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window, yet a deal failed to materialise ahead of the September 1 deadline. United’s pursuit of the Dutch forward came to an abrupt end due to the hefty fee that Ajax were demanding over Antony.

United ended up spending £225million on six new signings during the window, as the budget failed to stretch far enough to sanction a move for Gakpo as well. United and Ten Hag continue to be linked with a move for the 23-year-old, yet the Dutchman has been warned by the club’s football director John Murtough that a January transfer will be challenging to complete.
