PSV attacker Gakpo warns Man Utd: Should I join Leeds?

Netherlands star Cody Gakpo admits he hasn't heard from Manchester United since the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with the PSV attacker, but decided against a move.

United went on to sign Antony from Ajax, while Gakpo rejected advances from Leeds United and Southampton around deadline day.

Asked about the matter by NRC, Gakpo stated: “That was a tough period. I learned from that. I'm going to do it differently. What comes, that comes. Suppose you want to go from RKC (Waalwijk) to PSV, but that club is not coming. Then you can panic.

“I thought about Manchester United, but when that didn't happen, I couldn't remember. And I started to doubt. Leeds United did come. Should I go there? Now I wait everything. I haven't heard from Manchester United yet. When they come, I'll think about it. I also seek the help of God in these decisions."

He added on his faith: “As footballers, we are in the spotlight. People watch us. I feel it a duty to do something about it. I try to convey the lessons I learn from my church as best as possible to others who need it."
