Netherlands star Cody Gakpo has revealed he will decide on his club future following the World Cup.

The forward has been linked with several clubs across Europe over recent months, including Manchester United and Real Madrid.
The Red Devils were keen on Gakpo in the summer, but couldn't afford him after spending £85.5m on Ajax winger Antony, with their summer signings also including Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia - totalling £227m.
Los Blancos are now said to be rivalling United for Gakpo, according to The Telegraph , with the Dutch international valued at £47m - although that price is expected to rise following his impressive World Cup.
And talk is intensifying that Gakpo, who can play as a striker, No 10, or out wide, may well leave PSV during the January transfer window.
Following the Netherlands' victory over the USA on Saturday, Gakpo revealed he would weigh up his future following the tournament.
'After (I will decide my future). I’m not thinking about that now,' he told reporters.
'I’m just really focused on the tournament, trying to keep performing well and helping the team and hopefully when we become world champions then I can think about that [the future].
