Man Utd fans all say the same thing as transfer targets Frenkie de Jong and Cody Gakpo combine to score in World Cup


MANCHESTER UNITED fans were all left saying the same thing during Holland’s 2-0 win over Senegal.

That’s after transfer targets Frenkie de Jong and Cody Gakpo combined for a late goal in Monday’s World Cup clash.

Louis van Gaal’s men scored twice late on to seal victory in their group stage opener.

Former Everton man Davy Klaassen fired home Holland’s second goal deep into injury time.

But it was Gakpo’s 84th minute opener that set tongues wagging at Old Trafford.

The PSV Eindhoven star headed past Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy to finally break the deadlock.

And Gakpo’s assist was provided by none other than Barcelona midfielder De Jong.

The pair were both strongly linked with moves to Manchester United over the summer.

Gakpo was also wanted by Arsenal, while De Jong was a target for Chelsea too.

However, United boss Erik ten Hag is believed to still be keen on the Dutch duo.


And Red Devils fans were left drooling at the prospect of seeing them link up at the Theatre of Dreams next summer.

One supporter said: “Gakpo’s goal was assisted by Frenkie de Jong. The future of Manchester United is in safe hands.”

Another declared: “From De Jong to Gakpo, two boys Ten Hag really wants at United.”

One laughed: “De Jong to Gakpo… will we see them at United?”

Another added: “De Jong what a pass, Gakpo perfect run and header, bring them both to United!”

While De Jong has remained tight-lipped over his United links, Gakpo has made it clear he would jump at the chance to sign for them.

He said earlier this month: “I think at the end of this season I will be ready to take that step. I feel like I was already that way at the start of this season, but after this season I’m even more ready to take that next step.

“Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool. It would be an honour to play there, but I also have to see what kind of team would suit me best.”
