AC Milan set to hijack Man Utd January move for 23-year-old PSV winger

By | November 23, 2022

Serie A giants AC Milan have reportedly identified PSV Eindhoven attacker Cody Gakpo as a potential transfer target for 2023.


Throughout the summer window, Gakpo was strongly linked with a departure from his current Dutch team, only for none of the interested teams to meet his valuation.

Despite the distractions, the 23-year-old has still been able to put together a productive start to the current campaign, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists from just 18 games in all competitions.

While there is still over three-and-a-half years left on his current deal, PSV are believed to be open to a sale in a future transfer window if their price tag is met.

Gakpo has previously acknowledged that he had been ready to sign for Man United, while team director John de Jong backed up those comments by claiming that Eredivise giants, PSV believed to lose their most prized asset.

Speaking to Voetbal International, De Jong said: “Manchester United signed up at the beginning of the transfer period. They expressed their interest. But after that, it took a long time.”

Although the Red Devils appear ready to make a fresh approach during 2023, Fichajes reports that AC Milan are among three teams who are ready to launch rival bids.

The report suggests that last season’s Serie A winners may be prepared to make their move during the winter transfer window in an effort to see off rival interest.
