As the future of United last season's main striker Cristiano Ronaldo not known during the summer transfer window as he was pushing to leave the club. Ronaldo the Manchester United board to let him leave the club in case any club had shown an interest in signing him.
This forced the Manchester United start looking for his possible replacement incase he left. The player identified was the Holland international Cody Gakpo who plays for PSV Eindhoven.
The deal didn't materialised as Ronaldo ended up staying at the club. The player was ready to join Manchester United as he wanted to play under his fellow Holland international Eric Ten Hag. He even turned down other offers as he only wanted the United move.
It has now been revealed that United rivals Leeds United are set to move for the player in the January transfer window and they are set to meet with PSV to discuss on the transfer fee.
This may left United fans worried considering the firm the striker has been in this season. However, if United decides to move for the player in the January transfer window, they will surely get him due to Ten Hag connection.

Gakpo is also a big fan of the United manager hence would jump into any opportunity offered by the manager.
