The replacement for CR7

The replacement for CR7? Gakpo, in the sights of Manchester United

During the 2022 World Cup in Qatar , attacker Cody Gakpo was not only one of the highest points for the Netherlands but also one of the best young players in the competition . Thus, several important clubs have already laid their eyes on the PSV player and Manchester United seems to be the closest to taking over his services and thus adding him as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

CR7 parted ways with the club a few weeks ago and, in the middle of the World Cup, United worked in silence and watched the stars of the competition. It was the 23-year-old attacker who aroused the interest of the coach, Erik ten Hag, and for whom they are now preparing to offer.

According to The Mirror , the English team would already have an agreement with the player , so all that remains is to resolve the issue of payment with PSV . The Dutch team knows that the great World Cup that Gakpo had will make it difficult to retain him, but they hope to get at least 50 million euros in exchange for their star From him. For now, they say that United’s offer did not reach that number, but it does not seem to be something prohibitive for the powerful Premier League team either .

Although the team led technically by Louis Van Gaal said goodbye in the quarterfinals of the World Cup after losing on penalties against the Argentine National Team , Gakpo managed to string together great performances during the competition.

In all, he scored three goals during the tournament, adding to his nine in 14 Eredivisie games and three in five Europa League games. Now Ten Hag wants him to replace Cristiano Ronaldo , one of the best players in the world. Will he measure up?
