According to reports, Manchester United have agreed personal terms with attacker Cody Gakpo. The report also states his representatives are constantly in talk with the Red Devils officials.

THE ATTACKER IS FOCUSED ON THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PLAYOFF GAME.
Gakpo said, “We must first focus on and try to make it to the Champions League,” Gakpo recently told ESPN. “Then it is more likely that I will stay. I don’t think I have said anywhere that I am leaving, so there is definitely a chance that I will stay.”I’m open for a cup of coffee with the management – or coffee for them and water for me. We’ll see how it goes.”
Manchester United are also focused on different signings. Their first priority is to sign Antony. They also plan to sign a right-back and a backup goalkeeper. The Red Devils are also planning to convince Frenkie De Jong to come to Old Trafford in the last days of the transfer window. The report also states that they will try to sign Gakpo even if they sign Antony.
The Dutchman largely operates as a left-sided forward. He has played for PSV in 138 matches. He has scored 45 goals and has also provided 35 assists in the process. Cody Gakpo is also compared to the likes of Thiery Henry and Robin Van Persie.
