Gakpo: I would consider joining Manchester United

Netherlands striker Cody Gakpo revealed on Wednesday that he is open to joining Manchester United.

The 23-year-old Gakpo is one of the most dazzling stars in this World Cup. Since November 21, he has played 4 games for Netherlands and scored 3 goals, helping the Oranje to advance to the quarter-finals.

At the club level, Gakpo also performed exceptionally well. Before playing in the World Cup this season, he played 14 games for PSV and scored 9 goals and 12 assists.

"Tough times"

There are multiple indications that Manchester United considered signing Gakpo in the summer transfer market, but the deal fell through. In an exclusive interview with NRC, the Dutch striker said that missing the chance to land in the Premier League hit him hard: "It was a difficult period, but I did learn from it. Now I will take different measures to make things go smoothly. It happens naturally."

"feeling panicked"

"Suppose you want to join PSV from Waalwijk and the club doesn't submit an offer. You panic immediately."

"I did think about joining Manchester United, but it didn't happen, I can't remember exactly when. So I started to have doubts. Leeds United did send an invitation. I thought: should I go there?" 

"Will consider an offer from Manchester United"

Gakpo continued to say that he is open to joining Manchester United, but he has not received an offer from the club so far. "Right now, I'm waiting for things to happen. I haven't heard from Manchester United yet. If they submit an offer, I will consider it," said the Dutch striker. "When making a decision, I will also ask God for help. "
