According to reports, Manchester United will not be signing Wout Weghorst on a permanent basis. He arrived at the club on January 13th, following Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit on November 22nd, as a temporary replacement, and there has been much speculation as to whether his temporary basis would be extended.  

Since arriving at Manchester United, he was in the starting line-up for all ten games he appeared in across all competitions. His only goal came in an away game in the 45th minute of a 3-0 win against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup.   

Who is Wout Weghorst? 
Wout Weghorst is a right-footed men’s professional football player who recently signed a loan spell agreement to play for English Premier League side Manchester United.  

The 30-year-old striker was born in Borne, Netherlands, in August 1992, and while playing for United, he wore the number 27 shirt (previously worn at United by Alex Telles).
 

His professional career at a senior level began in 2012 when he signed for Emmen, scoring 20 goals in 62 appearances. He played there until 2014 and moved to Heracles Almelo, where he also scored 20 goals, but this time in 62 games.  

From 2016 to 2018, he played for AZ, scoring 31 goals in 60 appearances, and then he signed for Vfl Wolfsburg, scoring 59 goals in 118 appearances between 2018-2022.  

He moved to Burnley in January 2022, scoring 2 goals in 20 appearances, and had a brief loan spell at Beşiktaş before moving to United.  

Will Weghorst stay at United? 
According to reports, Manchester United have no intention of extending Weghort’s loan spell move, despite being praised for his efforts for the team by fans, ex-players, and the club.
