Manchester United are negotiating a loan deal for Besiktas striker Wout Weghorst in order to solve their striker crisis until the end of the season.
The striker waved goodbye after scoring the winning goal in Turkey’s 2-1 Super Lig triumph over Kasimpasa.
After Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract was terminated by the Manchester United board due to his interview with Piers Morgan, Anthony Martial is the only striker available.
Martial has been struggling constantly in front of goal and is being maintained by Erik Ten Hag. Also, Jadon Sancho is absent from the first team squad.
Marcus Rashford is the club’s only attacker, and due to potential sales before the end of the season, the Glazers are unwilling to invest more in the club, and only a loan deal will be considered.
Manchester United have also taken Vincent Aboubakar as their second option, as the Cameroonian hopes to play for a big club one day.
Wout Weghorst has scored seven goals this season, including two in the quarterfinals against Argentina in the 2022 World Cup. Last season, he joined Burnley and scored two goals in 20 Premier League games.
The deal has put joy on Manchester United fans’ faces, who are likely to see a similar Odion Ighalo deal after the striker scored some important goals during a loan spell at the club. Ten Hag wants a signing that adds quality to the squad.
The manager today criticized Manchester United’s recruitment pattern, claiming they signed too many average players in previous seasons.
Joao Felix and Marcus Thuram are considered to join Manchester United before the end of the January transfer window.
