TOP STORY: Man Utd in contact for PSV's Gakpo

Manchester United are in contact with the representatives of PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo over a possible January move, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The 23-year-old Netherlands international forward has taken the World Cup by storm, scoring three times, and interest from Old Trafford could now become concrete.

Earlier this week, ESPN sources revealed that United manager Erik ten Hag had asked the club to explore the possibility of making a signing to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who has had his contract terminated by mutual consent.

However, PSV are reportedly unwilling to allow Gakpo to leave in the middle of the season, with Romano adding that three or four clubs are in the race to sign him and a reported fee of €60 million being touted.

Gakpo will next be in action at the World Cup when Netherlands take on United States on Saturday in the round of 16.
