Besiktas denies the existence of the Weghorst release clause. The existence of a release clause incontract that Manchester United may exercise has been disputed by Besiktas. For Premier League powerhouses United, the striker from the Netherlands has unexpectedly emerged as a transfer target. Weghorst, who moved to Turkey on loan at the start of the 2022–23 season, is still bound by a contract with Burnley, and Besiktas believe there is no clause in his present terms that would let him return to England if a small compensation amount is paid.
According to a statement from the Istanbul-based organization, there was a need to make a statement owing to speculative rumors in the media concerning our football player Wout Weghorst after the match of our Football A Team against Kasimpasa in the Super Lig. It is untrue to say that our football player’s contract contains an exit clause that allows him to go if the Premier League makes him an offer in exchange for 2.5 million euros in compensation.
The rumor that the player in question will leave the team on Tuesday, however, is incorrect in every way. The Besiktaş Gymnastics Club is the only owner of the Wout Weghorst initiative. We also promise to update the public and our distinguished community on any developments in this matter.
Erik ten Hag is looking for a short-term deal that will allow the Red Devils to reinforce their attacking ranks through the remainder of the current season. United is in the hunt for another striker after agreeing to release Cristiano Ronaldo in December 2022.
In his previous Premier League season with Burnley, Weghorst scored just twice, but this season he has nine goals for Besiktas and shown at the 2022 World Cup that his physical presence can trouble even the best in the business.
