Fabrizio Romano Provides Exciting Manchester United Transfer Update About World Cup Star

Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Besiktas striker Wout Weghorst, who is on loan from Burnley, as per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The Netherlands international shocked Argentina at the 2022 FIFA World Cup after scoring a quickfire brace in the dying embers of the quarter-final clash. He was brought on by manager Louis van Gaal when La Albiceleste were leading 2-0.

After helping his team take the game to extra time, the centre-forward slotted his penalty in the shootout. However, Oranje was eliminated as Virgil van Dijk and Steven Bergwijn's penalty misses proved to be costly.

In total, he made four substitute appearances for his nation in Qatar, which was seemingly enough to bring him on Manchester United's radar. The Red Devils are in the market for a new striker after Cristiano Ronaldo's unceremonious exit in November.

Joao Felix, Alvaro Morata, and Dusan Vlahovic have been mentioned among the names United are considering after missing out on Cody Gakpo. They are now exploring a deal to sign the newly-signed Liverpool forward's national teammate and bring him to Manchester.

Burnley signed Weghorst from VfL Wolfsburg in January 2022 in a bid to avoid relegation at the end of the season. They failed, and the Dutchman was loaned to Besiktas in June 2022 on a one-year deal.

He has scored eight goals and provided four assists in 16 league games for the Black Eagles so far. However, he is reportedly interested in leaving Vodafone Park in a bid to join Manchester United this winter.

There is supposedly a €10 million buy-option included in his current contract. Any move for Weghorst to M16 is believed to be in the hands of Burnley and Besiktas.
