With the imminent out of the Dutch player from the United squad, Besiktas are targeting Wout Weghorst for a re-signed when he goes back from his loan to Burnley as a permanent deal.

But the performance of the striker and the lack of goals he scored during his time at the club, are some of the reasons why the Red Devils, will not renew his loan and is obligated to go back to the Championship where Burnley is playing.
What are the numbers of Wout Weghorst during his stay at Manchester United?
In the time the sensation of the World Cup, after the match with Argentina, he manage to only score two goals and give two assists in the 22 games he disputed for United between all the competitions he has played this season. The reason he has only played 1.462′ minutes, is because of the great level Marcu Rashford is, overshadowing the Dutch giant and becoming the second option for Ten Hag in the United’s attack.
It was a good move to bring him to United?
One of the motives, that Eik Ten Hag ask for this player, was due to all the injuries his squad was having at the time, and the low performance of some of the players, who nowadays, are top priorities for the Red Devils. The Dutch player has put a spotlight above himself, due to the performance he develops in the World Cup, and that put an interest in the former Ajax coach. But after Qatar, some players come back from their loans, this is the case of Martial, and some others recover their level and improve it, like Rashford.
