PSV ace Gakpo, 23, has scored three goals in four World Cup games.

And speculation of a potential transfer to United appears to have heightened even further.

According to the Mirror, well respected Dutch journalist Valentijn Driessen recently found a phone left unattended in a Doha hotel toilet.

Pressing the home button to find out who’s it was to return to its owner, Driessen saw a picture of Van Gaal with his wife Truus as the lock screen.

And it is alleged there were two missed calls from a caller saved as “Manchester United”.

After discovering the phone belonged to Van Gaal, Driessen is said to have quickly returned it to the Holland gaffer.

But his shocking discovery appears to have fuelled more rumours of a Gakpo switch to Old Trafford.

SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this month that the Red Devils are readying a January bid for the forward.

Gakpo himself also recently hinted at move to United.

He told Dutch newspaper NRC : “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 for 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.”

Gakpo will be hoping to continue his stunning form tonight as Holland face Argentina in the quarter-finals.

Whoever comes out on top will face the winners of Brazil vs Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals.
