Cody Gakpo wants to focus the most with the Netherlands at the 2022 World Cup and then decide on the future, with MU leading the way to get the signature of PSV striker.
The 23-year-old striker shines in Qatar with 3 goals, with the Netherlands to meet Argentina in the quarterfinals World Cup 2022.
According to Foot Mercato, PSV has now significantly increased the price of Cody Gakpo and will push further once he continues to impress at the world football festival.
Specifically, if in the summer MU could buy Cody Gakpo for about 40 million euros, now that number has increased to 60 million euros. Not to mention, the Red Devils now face competition from Liverpool and Arsenal.
Cody Gakpo is a player targeted by Erik ten Hag in the MU reform plan, but because of the need to prioritize the budget on Antony (Ajax), the deal was canceled later.
Currently, MU needs a new striker after deciding to liquidate Ronaldo’s contract early because of deliberately badmouthing the club as well as internal divisions.
A few days ago, Football Insider announced that MU had reached an agreement in principle with Cody Gakpo, but the player himself confirmed that he wanted to put all his energy into fighting with the Netherlands for the highest goal at the 2022 World Cup, and then only there is an official answer about the future.
“Honestly, I’m not thinking about that right now. No one in the Netherlands team is saying the same thing at the moment.
I want to focus on the 2022 World Cup, keep playing well to help the team.
Hopefully, we can become the 2022 World Cup champions, before we can think of anything else.”
There is a remarkable detail, senior in the Dutch team, Van Dijk was told to advise Cody Gakpo not to come to MU, similar to the way head coach Van Gaal warned this player in the summer.
The Netherlands will meet Argentina in the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2022, at 2:00 on December 10.
