Erik ten Hag has stated that a loan agreement for Burnley striker Wout Weghorst is “near” to being finalized by Manchester United.
WHAT OCCURED? After Cristiano Ronaldo abruptly left the team in December, United has been eager to get another attacker. Weghorst, a Dutch international, soon became a priority target, and a loan agreement—following talks with Burnley and his last loan club Besiktas—is ready to be finalized. The 30-year-old frontman will be a welcome addition to the Red Devils’ lineup, but he won’t be ready to play on Saturday when they take on Manchester City.
WHAT THEY SAID: United manager Erik ten Hag stated, “We are near,” in reference to a January window raid for Weghorst. He won’t be accessible tomorrow.
