Manchester United to hold internal transfer meeting regarding Cody Gakpo and right-back search soon – Man United News And Transfer News


Manchester United have had a bumpy ride so far under Eric ten Hager. Expectations are high for the Dutch manager given the pedigree he has built up at former club Ajax.

The summer transfer window was a success, with United bringing in five permanent players and one on loan, as the Ten Witches set out to mold the squad in their own image.

United’s disastrous start, losing their first two games before starting a run of good results, underscored the hard work of the players under their new boss.

Apart from the fiasco in the Manchester derby and the away loss to Aston Villa, the Red Devils are in pretty good shape and are currently ranked fifth in the standings, only 3 points behind fourth place with one game less.

Internal transfer meeting on card

However, the team still has some holes to fill, especially at right-back and offensively. Diogo Dalot has always been his own right-back position, but the club currently has no suitable substitute.

While the club’s original plans were to wait until the summer to tackle the striker, Ronaldo’s sensational departure meant those plans were delayed.

Many names like Joao Felix, Memphis Depay and Cody Gakpo have been mentioned as possible solutions, and Gakpo seems ideal.

The Netherlands international has been superb for club and country and is his country’s top scorer at the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.

A £50m price tag has been discussed, with Real Madrid also in the running for the highly rated PSV Eindhoven attacker. His compatriot Virgil van Dijk recently spoke about the best option for a striker.

The Old Trafford side will hold an internal meeting soon to discuss their priorities for the January transfer window, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Gakpo and RB key talking points

“There will be internal discussions about the striker and Gakpo in the next few days and we will see how United proceed,” Romano said in his speech. daily briefing for offside.

The club will also discuss addressing future Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The right-back is a regular under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is clearly not being judged by the new boss.

His clumsy possession of the ball and inability to affect the team’s progress is believed to be the main reason why the England defender has only played four minutes this season.

“Wan-Bissaka could leave because United have been very clear: they want to find a solution for him, although it is too early to say where he will go,” Romano added.
