According to Barnes, it would make sense if Man United recruited Gakpo as Ronaldo’s replacement at Old Trafford. Coach Erik ten Hag admits the team is looking for a striker.
Gakpo impressed the Netherlands at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The PSV star scored three goals in five appearances to help his national team reach the last eight. Meanwhile, Ronaldo is currently a free agent after being terminated by Man United last month.
Barnes told BonusCodeBets: “I think it would make sense to sign Gakpo for Manchester United. Ronaldo is gone and they are not really convinced by Anthony Martial when he says he will be the main No. 9 of the team. They are looking for a striker because Marcus Rashford likes to play wide.”
“Gakpo will have more playing time at Manchester United than at Liverpool and will also be a better fit for them. He is a goal threat and will work hard for the team.”
