Manchester United sign Dutch center Weghorst on loan for half a season

Manchester United announced on Friday that the 30-year-old center Wout Weghorst, currently on loan from Burnley to Besiktas, has joined the Red Devils on a loan until June 2023.

Wout Weghorst serves as a center and will join Burnley from Wolfsburg in January 2022. After The Clarest were relegated to the Championship this season, the Dutchman was loaned to Besiktas for a season. He has played 18 times for Besiktas and has scored 9 goals and 4 assists so far.

At the national team level, Weghorst represented the Netherlands in 19 appearances and scored 5 goals, including two goals in the 2022 World Cup.

Weghorst’s loan period at Besiktas is still half a year, but the latter chose to terminate the contract early after receiving 2.825 million euros. Many reporters added that Manchester United will fully bear Weghorst’s salary for the rest of the season, but did not include a buyout clause in the Dutch center’s deal.

“Giving everything for Manchester United”

Returning to the Premier League after half a year, Weghorst’s joy is beyond words. He said, “I am honored to join Manchester United. I have played against the club in the past, and now I have the opportunity to wear the famous red shirt. I feel amazing.”

“I’ve seen the progress Manchester United has made this season under Erik ten Hag and I can’t wait to start playing my part and push the team to achieve its goals.”

Weghorst also promised the public: “No matter what happens in the next few months, I promise you: as long as I am here, I will give everything to the club.”

“Thank you to everyone who helped me get on this stage. I’m now looking forward to meeting my new teammates and getting involved right away.”

“Will improve the team”

Manchester United director of football John Murtough had no shortage of praise for Weghorst. “Wout’s goalscoring record in multiple European leagues has been consistent and his performances will enhance the team for the remainder of the season,” Murtough asserted.

“We were also drawn to his strong personality, and dedication to football, which fit perfectly with the spirit Eric has cultivated in our team. He has a strong desire to join Manchester United and be part of what we are trying to achieve this season. .”
