Cody Gakpo has hinted PSV securing Champions League football could make him decide against a move to Manchester United.

The 23-year-old Netherlands international is the latest name to be linked with Old Trafford as new manager Erik ten Hag looks to strengthen his squad in the final weeks of the summer transfer window.

United are yet to open talks with Gakpo or PSV though – as reported by The Independent on Tuesday – their interest in the winger is known.

Gakpo featured as PSV progressed to the Champions League qualifying rounds with a 3-2 win over Monaco on Tuesday night. They now face Rangers for a place in the group stage.

“We have to focus on that first and try to make it to the Champions League,” said Gakpo ESPN after the game when asked about his future.

“Then it’s more likely that I’ll stay. I don’t think I said anywhere that I’m leaving, so there’s definitely a chance that I’ll stay.”

“I’m open to a cup of coffee with management – or coffee for them and water for me. Let’s see how it goes.”

Gakpo is a right-footed player who has played mostly on the left for PSV, who are coached by former United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy.

If United confirm their interest, Gakpo would be another signing from the Eredivisie under Ten Hag following the arrivals of Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez from Feyenoord and Ajax respectively.

Christian Eriksen, United’s other summer signing, is a former Ajax player who also trained with the club last season while recovering from heart surgery.

United ended their pursuit of Marko Arnautovic on Monday after backlash from fans over the possible signing of the striker from Bologna.

Arnautovic had emerged as a surprise target amid uncertainty over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford and a lack of options following Anthony Martial’s hamstring injury.
