ERIK TEN HAG has reportedly told Manchester United to sign TWO World Cup sensations.
That’s as he looks to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with a new forward this winter.
ESPN claims Ten Hag is eager to land a top attacker in January.

The first is Holland’s Cody Gakpo, who has been on Ten Hag’s radar since last season with PSV Eindhoven.

And despite being predominantly a left winger, Gakpo is becoming increasingly accomplished as a No9.
He has made no secret of his desire to play at a higher level.
And a deal could be struck with PSV fairly quickly – for the right price.
The second player on Ten Hag's list is Rafael Leao, who has become one of Serie A’s top stars with AC Milan.

And Leao is yet to get a proper run through the middle for either club or country.
It means Gakpo is the more likely of the two to join United in January.
But there could be a chance of seeing both men at the Theatre of Dreams next season.
