Manchester United are serious about signing Wout Weghorst on loan this month and even the striker is pressing to join the Red Devils.
As per today’s version of The Telegraph (news image provided below), the 19-capped Dutch forward has pleaded with Besiktas to let him move to Old Trafford.
Weghorst has been a key player for the Turkish giants in the current campaign while playing on loan from Burnley.
In 16 league games, the Netherlands forward has directly contributed in 12 goals (8 goals and 4 assists).
As far as his international career is concerned, the 30-year-old has so far started 5 games for the Oranje, scored as many goals and provided one assist.
He did not start a single game at the FIFA World Cup but made four appearances and scored 2 goals against eventual winners, Argentina.
Weghorst’s loan spell in Turkey will expire at the end of the campaign and Besiktas are expecting some sort of reward for ending the loan deal early to let the player join Man United. If not, they are more than happy to keep the player for the remainder of the season.
Ceyhun Kazanci, DOF claimed
“For example, if Burnley told us: ‘Weghorst is moving to this team and we are giving you half of the fee’ we would sit down and talk to them.”
