The Portuguese superstar might leave Man Utd as soon as this winter.

Manchester United target Cody Gakpo will reportedly be available to join a new side this winter.

The Red Devils have returned to the market to look for a new forward after Cristiano Ronaldo’s explosive interview earlier this week.

The 37-year-old’s remarks about “not respecting” Erik ten Hag might end his career at Old Trafford as soon as this winter.

However, Man Utd might have the option to sign Gakpo as CR7’s replacement in January.

According to 90min, PSV Eindhoven are open to selling the 23-year-old this winter.

Gakpo has found a wonderful start to the new campaign, registering 14 goals and 14 assists. However, United might face serious competition to secure his signing this winter.

PSV’s decision to accept bids this winter might attract interest from a number of clubs who are already monitoring the Dutchman.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Paris Saint-Germain are closely following Gakpo’s situation, but United remain the frontrunners to secure his services.

PSV will reportedly demand around £40m for Gakpo. However, interested clubs must also present the forward with an interesting project as he has too many elite suitors.

Leeds United saw PSV reject their summer bid for Gakpo earlier this year. But they won’t have a chance in the upcoming transfer race for the young star.
