Besiktas has confirmed that the striker load deal has been terminated by a mutual agreement with the Turkish club receiving a sum of €2.5M and United will pay Burnley €2.6M as Dutchman moves to Old Trafford until the end of the season. Weghorst who seem excited about this transfer said “I feel privileged to be joining Manchester United”.
He went further to say that, “I’ve played against the club in the past and it’s a fantastic feeling to now have the chance to pull on the famous red shirt.
“I’ve seen United’s progress under Erik ten Hag this season and can’t wait to start playing my part in pushing the team towards its aims.”
“Whatever happens in the next few months, I can promise to give everything to the club for as long as I am here. I thank everyone who has played a part in getting me to this stage, and now I am looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and getting involved straight away.”
Weghorst, who could make his debut when United face Crystal Palace next Wednesday, scored nine goals and grabbed four assists in 18 appearances on loan at Besiktas.
He has 19 international caps for the Netherlands, scoring five goals, including two at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
