Gakpo finally speaks on joining Man United in January transfer window
Netherland, international and PSV Eindhoven forward, Cody Gakpo, has finally commented on reports linking him with a move to Manchester United in the January transfer window.
Gakpo said it is nice to be linked with Man United, adding that anything is possible amid interest from the Red Devils.
But the Netherlands international, however, said he is concentrating on the World Cup at the moment.
Gakpo has been linked with a move to Manchester United since the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo from the Premier League giants.
The 23-year-old is Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag’s preferred forward to replace Ronaldo at Old Trafford in the upcoming January transfer window.

“I’m focused now on the World Cup. It is always nice to hear, but I just focus here and do my best,” Gakpo said at a press conference ahead of Netherlands’ final Group A tie with Qatar on Tuesday when asked about the interest from Man United.
“I don’t get shy about the rumours. It is a nice thing that people write, but I am not too concerned with that.
“I’m not surprised. I know what I am capable of, but it is always a challenge to reach the highest level possible and I think I am not there yet. I think I can improve in a lot of things.
“It is a team sport, it is not about one person. I prefer it to be about the team. Right now, I am busy with the Dutch team.
“I will see what happens in the winter. In soccer, anything is possible.”
