Manchester United target Cody Gakpo has said ‘we’ll see what happens’ when asked about his future with current club PSV Eindhoven. 

The Dutchman was linked with a move to Man United, per The Mirror, back in October following a summer of speculation over his future.

Other clubs linked in the same report included the likes of Arsenal and Leeds United, while the Red Devils have been named as potential suitors for his signature in January by ESPN.

Gakpo’s current focus is on the Netherlands and the World Cup. The wide-man has netted in their games against Senegal and Ecuador and faces hosts Qatar later today.

When speaking about what the future holds, Gakpo held his cards very close to his chest. He stated (as per RMC Sport): “As things stand, I will still play for PSV after the winter break. But as I said before the start of the World Cup: we’ll see what happens.”

TIF Thoughts on Gakpo’s comments…

It’s clear that Gakpo doesn’t want to make any guarantees either way, which is understandable. It’s a wise move not to rock the boat, so to speak.

If he came out and spoke about wanting to leave PSV, it could create a toxic relationship between himself and the fans.

But he won’t want to do that, as the Dutchman is in fine form in the Eredivisie. He has 21 goal contributions from 14 games for PSV, which is a superb return, so the fans will definitely be loving him at the moment.

Having said that, he doesn’t want to completely rule out a move. A club like Man United is a club filled with a lot of history, so we’re sure he would love to play for them someday.

Gakpo typically operates as a left-winger but can play as a centre-forward, too. This could be something that draws Man United to the player, particularly since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
