Turkish giants Besiktas are interested in re-signing Wout Weghorst following his loan stint with Manchester United, according to The Sun.
The Burnley striker spent the first half of the season on loan with Besiktas. He was hugely impressive for them with nine goals and four assists from 18 games.
This convinced United to sign him on a temporary basis in January. Besiktas were compensated to terminate his loan deal before he moved to Old Trafford.
It is now reported by The Sun that Besiktas are prepared to re-sign the Dutchman this summer despite the striker’s decision to leave the club last winter.
Burnley are likely to prefer a permanent transfer but it is reported that Besiktas could propose another loan deal for the former Wolfsburg striker.
Man Utd may not re-sign Weghorst this summer
Weghorst has been impressive with his work rate and mobility in the final third but he has struggled to make regular goal contributions for United.
The 30-year-old has registered just two goals and three assists despite starting in 20 of his 21 appearances for the Red Devils this year.
Erik ten Hag recently opened the possibility of keeping Weghorst but in our opinion, United could be better off parting ways with the striker.
The Dutchman has missed seven big chances over the last three months and the club clearly need an upgrade on him ahead of next season.
In our view, Anthony Martial could act as a future deputy with United expected to land a marquee striker during this summer’s transfer window.
