Wout Weghorst emerges as surprise target for Manchester United

Wout Weghorst could be on his way to Manchester United soon. The Netherlands international is currently on loan at Besiktas from Burnley. But, he could return to England to play in the Premier League with one of the biggest sides in the division. 

After their recent 2-1 win over Kasimpasa, the striker appeared to wave goodbye to the fans. He has scored eight goals and provided four assists in 16 league games for Besiktas in 22/23. And, after his performances with the Netherlands at the World Cup, he could be on his way to Old Trafford. 

Wout Weghorst linked with Manchester United transfer 

The deal for the 6ft 6in forward will not be straightforward, though. As revealed by Besiktas head coach, Senol Gunes, there is no clause to recall the player in the middle of the season. Which means that he is expected to stay with the Turkish side until the summer. 

However, an agreement will now have to be reached between Burnley and Besiktas to terminate the loan deal. Potentially, the Clarets might also have to pay compensation for recalling Wout Weghorst. 

Erik Ten Hag has been vocal about Manchester United’s need for a new striker. And following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, they have been left short-staffed up front. A target man like Weghorst could add a whole new dimension to their game, and help the team finish the season strongly.
