MANCHESTER UNITED transfer target Wout Weghorst has reportedly sustained an injury ahead of his potential move to the club.

The Dutch striker is being lined-up by the Red Devils to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after his acrimonious exit.

Weghorst seems ready to join the Red Devils on loan in a £2.65million deal but he supposedly missed Besiktas training today with muscle contractions and a groin injury.

Outlet Fanatik report that he trained away from the rest of the squad in the gym after a fitness setback.

It is unclear whether it could jeopardise his switch to Man Utd or if it is a precautionary measure.

Weghorst is supposed to stay at Besiktas on loan from Burnley until the end of the season, but his temporary deal could be cut short to allow him to go to United.

It has been reported that Erik ten Hag’s side have completed negotiations over signing the player but the team based in Istanbul will only let him go if they bring in a replacement.

They have been linked with AC Milan striker Divock Origi and Vincent Aboubakar.

The Cameroonian has just seen his contract at Al-Nassr ripped up to facilitate their signing of Ronaldo.

This means CR7’s exit from Man Utd may have reportedly started a domino effect of transfers involving both Weghorst and Aboubakar.


Ahead of Weghorst completing his switch back to the Premier League, Holland legends Wesley Sneijder and Marco van Basten both slammed the move.

Weghorst scored for Besiktas in their 2-1 win over Kasimpasa and appeared to wave goodbye to the fans.

He has scored nine goals in 18 matches for the club this season.

During the last campaign, his January arrival at Turf Moor was not enough to keep Burnley in the Prem as he contributed with just two goals and three assists in 20 appearances.
