Manchester United Star Set To Turn Back On Ten Hag And Move Back To His Homeland

Wout Weghorst, the towering striker at Manchester United is poised to secure a move back to his homeland this summer, regardless of Erik ten Hag‘s plans for him at Old Trafford.

The Dutch forward arrived at United on loan in January from Burnley via Besiktas, expressing his pride upon joining the Red Devils as a temporary solution to bolster their attacking options alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Weghorst has struggled to replicate his early-season form in the Premier League after an impressive stint in the Super Lig with Besiktas.

Weghorst’s Struggles and Uncertain Future

While Weghorst showcased his scoring prowess with nine goals in 18 games for Besiktas, his impact has been limited at Manchester United.

With only two goals in 27 appearances to date, the Dutchman has failed to establish himself as a consistent threat.

With manager Erik ten Hag eyeing a marquee signing for the No. 9 position in the upcoming transfer window, players like Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen, and Goncalo Ramos have been linked to the club.

Despite the potential arrival of a top-class striker overshadowing Weghorst, there are suggestions that the club might consider retaining him as a valuable squad player due to Ten Hag’s admiration for the 30-year-old forward.

Weghorst’s Desire for Clarity and Role

Weghorst has expressed his willingness to stay at Manchester United if given the opportunity and a clear role within the team.

In a recent interview with The Times, he stated, “If the club wants to keep me, I’ll have to know what role they have in mind for me.”

The Dutch striker is eager to feel wanted and valued by the club, leaving the decision in the hands of the management.

PSV Eindhoven as a Potential Destination

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his future at Manchester United, Weghorst is being backed to reject a potential stay and instead make a move to PSV Eindhoven.

Dutch journalist Valentijn Driessen believes that Weghorst would find more appreciation and success in his homeland, playing under the guidance of United legend Ruud van Nistelrooy.

With his goal-scoring abilities and experience, Weghorst would be a valuable addition to PSV’s squad, especially if the club secures a Champions League spot.

The Potential Transfer

Although Weghorst is currently contracted to Burnley until summer 2025, it is highly unlikely that he will feature in the Clarets’ Premier League campaign.

As a result, the club is expected to be open to selling Weghorst, with Transfermarkt valuing the striker at a fee of approximately €14m.
