Transfer: Van Nistelrooy speaks on Gakpo joining Man Utd


PSV Eindhoven manager, Ruud van Nistelrooy, has reacted to speculation linking his winger Cody Gakpo with a departure to Manchester United this summer, as per Metro.

Gakpo has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer.

Reports had emerged that Man United manager, Erik ten Hag, has made contact with Gakpo, but a move for the player is yet to come to fruition.

Ten Hag is looking to bolster his attacking options this summer and Gakpo is viewed as a cheaper alternative to Ten Hag’s first-choice attacking signing, Ajax’s Antony.

However, speaking ahead of PSV’s Eredivisie tie with Go Ahead Eagles on Saturday evening, Van Nistelrooy said PSV would only talk when there is something concrete on Gakpo, praising the professionalism of the player.

Van Nistelrooy said, “He keeps as far as possible away from that which causes noise in order to deliver a top performance. Cody is 23 years old and that is not always possible at that age, but for me, he is someone who is always busy with his profession.”

He added: “We will only talk about it when there is something concrete. We are working on his development as a player and how he can contribute to PSV.”
