Cody Jacobo’s performances at the World Cup have convinced Manchester United officials that he is ready for a move to the Premier League, 90 Minutes has learned.

Cody Jacobo’s performance in the World Cup convinced Manchester United officials that he was ready for a move to the Premier League. 90 minutes He has an experience.

The Netherlands international scored three goals in the three group matches at the World Cup in Qatar and was one of the standout players of the tournament so far – his goals helped the Netherlands qualify for the last 16, where they meet the United States next weekend. .

Erik ten Hag was due to sign Jakpo in the summer, but United have been stymied by PSV Eindhoven’s transfer demands after spending big bucks on the likes of Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez and Anthony.

The coach continues to pressure United to sign – especially after the mutual termination of Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract – and was hoping Gakpo would make a good impression at the World Cup so that the club’s decision-makers could understand his desire for a signature. United are said to be pleased with the PSV Eindhoven striker’s performance so far.

With Ronaldo gone, United were weaker up front than they had been at the start of the season – with Anthony Martial’s injury problems they were already struggling in that area. Gakpo is a versatile striker who can play in multiple positions – a trait that Haag likes.

One of the problems for United is that given his performance so far this season, they have to pay €10-15m more for the 23-year-old than they could have in the summer. United are still aiming for Champions League qualification and Ten Hag needs reinforcements – especially after Ronaldo’s departure.

90 minutes It was reported earlier this month that PSV are ready to part with their January star. Having lost the group stage in the Champions League earlier in the season, it is unlikely that they will be able to resist a lucrative offer.

Djaco was relented not only by United but also by Leeds and Southampton over the summer, but he turned down other offers after a failed transfer from United fell through. Ten Hag urges United to seal the deal this time around.

Khan player times Last month he had already spoken to Ten Hag about a possible move to Old Trafford: “I was about to leave. I spoke to Erik ten Hag several times at Manchester United.”

“In the end the deal didn’t go through, and it was a shame for me and my development. Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world. But also [schade] For PSV because transferring a player to Manchester United is good for the club.”

“In the last week of the transfer window I had to decide if I was going to Leeds or Southampton. In the end I stayed. But it was a difficult time.”

Jakpo played for PSV in the Eredivisie this season, scoring nine goals and 12 assists in 14 league matches.
