Manchester United has not signed PSV and Netherlands striker Cody Gakpo as the club’s owners, the Glazer family, hope to sell the club soon. This is reported by the Daily Mail.

Manchester United initiated negotiations with the player but was forced to back out of the deal, giving Liverpool the green light. In general, the “Red Devils” in the winter transfer window will not be able to enter into full-fledged contracts with players and can only rely on rent.

The Glazer family has owned the club since 2005. It was reported that a deal to sell Manchester United could be concluded by spring.

Manchester United has 26 points after 14 matches in the Premier League. Wards of Eric ten Hag are in 5th place. Last season, the club failed to get into the Champions League, and in November parted ways with its main star, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Gakpo in five matches for the Netherlands national team at the World Cup in Qatar managed to distinguish himself three times, becoming the team’s top scorer. This season, he took part in 14 national championship games and scored nine goals.
