‘PSV braces after Manchester news: Gakpo away alone for jackpot’

PSV appears to have to brace itself as a Manchester United monster bid for Ajax forward Antony has been rejected. According to the Eindhovens Dagblad, the Brabanders only want to talk about a possible transfer after the game with Rangers FC.
After the clash with the Scots, there are openings for interested parties, says the regional newspaper. Gakpo must deliver the top prize anyway: PSV certainly does not settle for less than 45 to 50 million euros and several lucrative bonuses. As a result, the net amount will be much higher than the stated asking price.
The Athletic reported on Thursday evening that Ajax has referred an eighty million bid for Antony to the trash. The fact that The Mancunians want to go so far for the Brazilian also means that PSV can sit high in the tree, writes the ED. Perhaps the asking price will even be increased. PSV does not want to show that players in the Philips Stadium are cheap to pick up.
By the way, PSVs commitment is still to keep Gakpo, but the 23-year-old left winger sees a transfer. However, Champions League football could change his mind, partly in view of his World Cup chances.
