Good morning football fans

Manchester United have landed Burnley star Wout Weghorst on loan until the end of the campaign.

Weghorst enjoyed a prolific first half of the season in Turkey with Besiktas, where he also played on loan.

The Red Devils have splashed £2.5million to cut short the centre-forward’s stay with the Turkish giants.

The Netherlands international is relishing the new challenge on his plate, saying: “I feel privileged to be joining Manchester United.

“I’ve played against the club in the past and it’s a fantastic feeling to now have the chance to pull on the famous red shirt.

“I’ve seen United’s progress under Erik ten Hag this season and can’t wait to start playing my part in pushing the team towards its aims.

“Whatever happens in the next few months, I can promise to give everything to the club for as long as I am here.

“I thank everyone who has played a part in getting me to this stage, and now I am looking forward to meeting my new teammates and getting involved straight away.”

Meanwhile, Wolves have completed the signing of Mario Lemina from Nice.

Lemina has moved to the Molineux after agreeing a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The deal includes a further 12-month option for the midfielder.

The Gabon international comes with Premier League experience after previously competing for Southampton and Fulham.

And Chelsea are considering a move for Borussia Monchengladbach star Marcus Thuram.

And the Blues could land Thuram for as little as £9m, according to transfer expert Christian Falk.

The striker has just six months remaining on his contract and Gladbach are keen to cash in while they still can.

The West Londoners have yet to submit an offer for the France international but manager Graham Potter could be keen with new loan signing Joao Felix already suspended for three games.

Finally, Roma boss Jose Mourinho revealed he rejected the Portugal manager’s job.

Roberto Martinez was recently named as successor to Fernando Santos after a heartbreaking 2022 World Cup campaign.

That’s despite Cristiano Ronaldo wanting ex-Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham boss Mourinho to be national team gaffer, according to the Daily Mail.

And the Portuguese tactician himself has claimed his country’s FA wanted him in charge of the national team.

Mourinho said: “The fact that the president of the FPF said that I was not his first choice, but his only choice, makes me proud. But I decided not to go. I’m here and that’s what matters”
