Forget Gakpo, This is the Player that Man United Should Sign to Replace Cristiano Ronaldo

After deciding to end their relationship with Portugal international and World Class star forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, 20 times Premier League winners Manchester United are now understood to be working behind the scenes to potentially replace the five times Ballon d'Or winner.

The Red Devils are believed to have already reached out to Eredivise side, PSV Eindhoven over their star striker, Cody Gakpo and are willing to pay close to €50million to complete the deal in the coming January transfer window following the player's promising spell in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar with Netherlands.

Meanwhile, despite the 24 year old's fantastic displays for both the club and country in the last few months, he could find it difficult to adapt at Old Trafford with the Red Devils currently loaded with a number of players of his quality and style of play including Marcus, Rashford, Jadon Sancho as well as Antony.

Hence, the Red half of Manchester should instead turn their attention to Atletico Madrid star forward Joao Felix who is believed to be pushing for an exit from the Wanda Metropolitano.

At only 23 years, Felix have shown qualities of a potential top player, helping the Diego Simeone's side to clinch a number of titles including the La Liga with his style of play making him a real threat to opposition defenders.

The Portugal international is no doubt having the capability to potentially win the Ballon d'Or in the near future and a move to Old Trafford would be a win win situation for both parties.
