Man United make Wout Weghorst decision – Sources

Man United will not pursue a permanent deal for on-loan Burnley striker Wout Weghorst, sources have told Football Insider.

The 30-year-old joined the Red Devils on a loan until the end of the season in January after spending the first half of the 2022-23 campaign at Besiktas.

Weghorst was initially a regular starter for Erik ten Hag’s side but has now lost his place to the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford – who have led the line in his place.

The Netherlands international was drafted in during the winter window to bolster United’s attacking options following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in the build-up to the World Cup in Qatar.

Ronaldo was released by the Old Trafford club and eventually signed a money-spinning deal with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.

Weghorst, who was relegated from the Premier League with Burnley in the 2021-22 campaign, has found the net just twice in 28 Man United appearances.

He is yet to score in 15 outings for the club in the English top flight.

According to Sky Sports (14 January), Man United paid Burnley a fee of £2.5million in order to buy the Netherlands international out of his previous loan with Besiktas.

It is believed the Red Devils will pursue a big-money deal for striker capable of launching them into the fight for the Premier League title.

Football Insider revealed last week (9 May) that Tottenham’s Harry Kane is the “number one priority and top target” for Ten Hag’s side.

Meanwhile, Burnley boss Vincent Kompany has appeared to open the door to Weghorst’s reintegration into the Clarets squad.

As quoted by the Manchester Evening News (14 May), Kompany confirmed he will have a “conversation” with the striker when the 2022-23 campaign concludes.
