Leeds boss Jesse Marsch believes Cody Gakpo is now out of the club’s price range following his brilliant World Cup display.
Leeds were so confident they were going to sign Cody Gakpo this past summer that majority owner Andrea Radrizzani even tweeted about the club’s intent on making the deal happen.
“It’s difficult for us at Leeds because I think Gakpo’s gotten out of our price range,” Marsch said.
“I mean, we were so close to securing a transfer for him in the summer, it was so close, and now obviously it’s disappointing.
“Our sport director was in Holland meeting with the family, they had agreed on terms, on everything, was talking with PSV. I mean, we were 99.9% [agreed].”
