After Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from Manchester United, the club has decided to borrow striker Wout Weghorst from Besiktas, the team that is competing in the Turkish league at the moment.
After a string of controversies and controversies on the part of Cristiano Ronaldo directed toward the Old Trafford team, Manchester United made the unexpected announcement that they would not be renewing their contract with Ronaldo on the eve of the 2022 World Cup.
Although this could make the Red Devils squad short, especially in the striker position, when Mason Greenwood was also involved in a labor round prior to this move and has not set a date for his return, this move could make Man Utd ready to face Ronaldo. However, this could also make the Red Devils squad short. again.

Man Utd has been actively pursuing a number of targets, some of which can be mentioned here such as Vlahovic, Morata, and Abraham, in addition to older cases such as Depay. However, nothing beyond the level of rumors has been presented, and there has been no real approach from Man Utd.
Besiktas’ Wout Weghorst, a Dutch national who plays for a team that is currently competing in the Turkish league, is the latest player to be targeted by coach Ten Hag.
The strategist, who is 52 years old, is interested in Weghorst because he believes this player has the qualities he seeks.
In 18 games played for Besiktas this season across all competitions, Weghorst has contributed to 9 goals scored and 4 assists.
The Dutch player has the potential to meet a consistent goal output for the system that coach Ten Hag is building because of their enormous height (up to 1m97), as well as their excellent physicality.

Wout Weghorst played consistently well for the Netherlands during the 2022 World Cup, including scoring a brace in the dying minutes of the second half of their quarterfinal match against Argentina. It’s possible that the Netherlands would have advanced to the next round and Lionel Messi would not have been able to win the World Cup if it weren’t for the heroics of goalkeeper Martinez during the penalty shootout. But Martinez came through for his team.
Even this player found themselves in the middle of the action at one point during the game due to an argument, which prompted Messi to angrily exclaim, “Look, go back to your team!”
Fans of Besiktas saw Weghorst kiss the Besiktas logo while he was playing in his final match for the team. This may be interpreted as an indication that Weghorst will move to Manchester United in the near future.
