In their return to football, Manchester United had a winning start. They easily defeated Burnley by a score of 2-0 in the Carabao Cup, and now they will focus on the Premier League, where Erik ten Hag will face Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.
The January transfer window will then undoubtedly be the focus of interest. Although fifth place is not bad, Manchester United has fallen short of their season goals. Erik ten Hag should aim to place fourth or higher to help the Red Devils qualify for their preferred Champions League next season. Such lofty goals will undoubtedly draw players from all over Europe.
Manchester United have reportedly begun negotiations with PSV over the acquisition of in-form and in-demand attacker Cody Gakpo, according to a report from Mirror. Gakpo was one of the World Cup’s biggest surprises, and as a result, clubs all across Europe are clamoring to recruit him.
Gakpo, who is only 23 years old, already performs like an experienced forward. With that said, I believe he will be able to have an immediate impact in the Premier League. He may definitely be the player the Red Devils need to replace Cristiano Ronaldo if given the correct support system.
Gakpo has a remarkable overall record for a player of his age with 13 goals and 14 assists through all competitions so far this season. He also scored an astounding 3 goals in 5 World Cups.
It is undoubtedly a promising idea for Manchester United to have both players in their offensive lines, especially with Marcus Rashford in outstanding form. Erik ten Hag is beginning to employ an aggressive strategy that is stylish, original, and cutting edge. Exactly what was required was this.
