Wout Weghorst: Besiktas deny Man Utd target has break clause in contract

A club statement on Monday said: “The claim that there is an exit clause in our player’s contract, stating that his contract can be terminated with a compensation of 2.5 million euros (£2.2million) in case of an offer from the Premier League, is fictitious.

“The news that the player in question will leave the team on Tuesday is completely untrue. The initiative regarding Wout Weghorst belongs entirely to Besiktas.”

Besiktas would want compensation before allowing Weghorst’s loan to be terminated early, particularly as their agreement with Burnley included an option to buy.

United are looking to the loan market to bring in an extra player after spending more than £200million in the summer.

United have until midday on Friday to complete a deal if any new signing is to be eligible for Saturday’s Manchester derby against neighbours City.
