Manchester United are set to make a splash in the transfer market with the signing of Dutch striker Wout Weghorst from Besiktas. Weghorst is expected to fill the void left by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, and will bring a wealth of experience to the Red Devils’ attack. The 30-year-old has been in fine form for Besiktas this season, and is now ready to make the switch to Old Trafford. Besiktas have agreed to terminate Weghorst’s loan contract, allowing him to move to United. The player has already packed up and said goodbye to his colleagues and staff. Burnley have also agreed to the transfer, and will receive a fee of 3 million euros for their part in the deal. Weghorst’s move to Manchester United is expected to be a win-win situation for all parties involved. Besiktas will receive a fee, while Eric ten Haag finally gets his man. Weghorst’s arrival will also open the door for Besiktas to bring in a replacement. All that remains is for the player to receive his permission to complete the transfer.

However, a journalist Serdar Sardag believes that not everything is so hopeless for the Turkish giant. With Burnley not paying a fee for him, they are now ready to cash in on his transfer to the Red Devils.
“Besiktas took a loan Weghorst free, but will earn 3 million euros. I don’t remember that in Turkey, lottery winnings. When you look at the math, with the income you’re going to get from Vegorst, he can turn to Abubakar.
“Whoever brought in Weghorst did a very good job. If Ahmet Nur Cebi sacks him, Besiktas will make a good deal.
Besiktas, Burnley and Manchester United have agreed on Weghorst’s transfer, but he will not leave without Besiktas’ permission.
From the outside, it looks like a win-win situation for all parties involved.
Eric ten Haag finally gets his man while Besiktas gets paid for his trouble, which will go a long way toward finding a replacement.
