Despite Manchester United’s interest, Tyrell Malacia has insisted that Cody Gakpo, a teammate from the Netherlands, is “good enough” to compete at the highest level.
Gakpo’s World Cup performances, according to a recent report from 90min, helped Manchester United’s management decide that the Dutchman is prepared to move to the Premier League. Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, the Red Devils are in desperate need of a striker, and Gakpo’s performance in the tournament in Qatar has demonstrated that he more than meets the criteria.
Gakpo is talented enough for the top, there’s no doubt, Malacia asserted when asked about his readiness for a move to a team like Manchester United by The Athletic after the game.
After the Netherlands’ excellent 3-1 victory over the United States on Saturday, Gakpo was asked about his future and responded, “I have to be honest, I am not thinking about that right now.
“I’m focused on the competition and want to continue giving excellent performances and supporting the squad. We may hopefully think about other things once we win the world championship.
The other players don’t really talk about that sort of thing, so I try to stay focused.
