According to the most recent reports, the move would be permanent, with the Super Lig club receiving approximately 35% of the fee

It was stated once more that the striker is personally pushing for the transfer to take place

Now it’s time to look at the situation in the Netherlands, where there is ‘disbelief’ that the transfer is taking place, according to AD, who claims he’s ‘on his way’ to the Premier League club

According to the Dutch newspaper, Weghorst ‘laughs at his critics’ after a career of having to prove himself repeatedly

The player’s story is ‘beautiful,’ according to AD, after he was passed over by FC Twente as a youngster. Willem II gave him a chance, but he did not progress from the reserves; a similar thing happened to him at FC Emmen two years before he was allowed to join Heracles as a free agent

Weghorst’s fortunes improved after that, and despite struggling at Burnley, he’s found his feet at Besiktas and caught the eye of Erik ten Hag

AD points out that the two men are from the same neighborhood. The manager hails from Oldenzaal, and the striker hails from Borne, both in the province of Twente.

‘I wish Wout Weghorst a 15-year contract with Manchester United,‘ writes columnist Willem van Hanegem in today’s AD. But how come one of the world’s most prestigious clubs has to knock on his door? ‘Why is there still a youth academy there?’
