Wout Weghorst is a player who is being talked about more and more and many assume that he will become the new player of Manchester United. Erik ten Hag urgently needs a striker like the Dutchman, and it seems that this job will not be easy to complete.
Besiktas sporting director Ceyhun Kazanci denied that things are over and confirmed that many factors will influence the potential departure of Weghorst. "I don't understand why Weghorst said goodbye to the fans, why he made such a move.
He is our football player right now. Our contract expires at the end of the season. If Manchester United or any other team wants Wegnorst, they will meet with Burnley anyway. Burnley will then contact us and discuss the terms of separation.
If we accept, the contract will be terminated. Otherwise, it will go on until the end of the season."- Kazanci said, as quoted by eurosport.com.
Kazanci on Weghorst: He can't just go
Kazanci emphasized the conditions under which Weghorst could leave the club and head for Old Trafford.
"He can't just go. There will have to be a reward for us to approve the separation. I'll give an example. Burnley told us, 'We made a deal with this team for Weghorst. We give you half of the transfer fee' This may be a different condition.
Then we'll sit down and talk." This staunch striker is very important for Besiktas as he has scored many goals in the Turkish club's shirt. Things could be finished soon, but let's wait for the agreement of all three parties.
"Weghorst is an important player for us. It is not enough to say goodbye to the audience. He also needs to talk to the club. I have heard of such a development, but it is not clear. I'll consider [him] leaving after I talk to both him and the club." The sporting director proved to be a difficult negotiator.
