Cody Gakpo has lit up the Qatar World Cup, and picking him to be the breakout star is a safe bet. Gakpo has scored a goal in each of the Netherlands' three games. The PSV midfielder has taken it upon himself to ensure that the Netherlands shine in Qatar. This, combined with his excellent league form (he had 12 assists and 9 goals in 14 games prior to the World Cup break), makes him a hot target in the January transfer window.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for the 22-year-old, whom they almost signed in the summer. Manchester United may believe they are the favourites to land him, and according to Sport Bible, they are, but Liverpool is also interested in the Dutch sensation. According to the publication, Liverpool has entered the race to sign Gakpo, but they are entering a race they cannot win.
Manchester United, unlike any other Gakpo suitor, has the advantage of both Ten Hag and Gakpo being represented by the same agency, SEG. Ten Hag can easily persuade Gakpo to join his project in this situation. With PSV keen to offload Gakpo in the winter, could the Dutchman be Ronaldo's replacement?
