Why Cody Gakpo's £37m Transfer to Liverpool Might be Great News For Manchester United

Despite holding interest for Holland international, Cody Gakpo for the past four or five months, 20 times Premier League winners Manchester United have now been forced to count their losses with the PSV Eindhoven star forward now headed to their arch rivals Liverpool in a sensational £37million transfer deal.

As confirmed by the Merseyside club as well as the Eredivise side, an agreement that will see Gakpo move to the Anfield Stadium has already been struck with the player now poised for medical checkup in the next few hours in order to complete the transfer.

Hence, the Red Devils have no choice but to turn their attention elsewhere and Gakpo's transfer to Liverpool couldn't come more as a blessing in disguise for the Erik ten Hag's side.

The Red half of Manchester have been linked with a potential swoop for Atletico Madrid star forward Joao Felix as well as Paris Saint-Germain superstar, Kyllian Mbappe over the last few weeks with the duo keen on new challenges.

Meanwhile, pricing Mbappe away from Paris Saint-Germain could prove a difficult mission for the Red Devils at least for the time being and hence, moving for Felix may be the best option for the Premier League giants.

As being reported by a number of reliable sources, the Portugal international is pushing to leave Wanda Metropolitano in the coming January transfer window with talks between his agent Jorge Mendes and Manchester United as well as Arsenal understood to be ongoing but the Mikel Arteta's side interest in Ukrainian Mykhaylo Mudryk may give the Red Devils an open chance to close the Joao Felix deal.

At only 23 years, Felix posseses qualities of a world class player, having the aura to dominate defenders left, right and center and his impressive displays for both Atletico Madrid and Portugal shows nothing but his ability to adapt to any environment.

What's more, the Benfica academy graduate is a more authordox striker compared to Gakpo and hence, he seems to be a perfect fit for the Red Devils and the best potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
