Ten Hag personally driving Man Utd move for Weghorst


Erik ten Hag is personally driving Manchester United's move for Besiktas striker Wout Weghorst.

The Athletic says a deal is somewhat complicated to negotiate with the Red Devils required to hold talks with both parent club Burnley and Besiktas in an effort to secure his services. Bestikas are seeking compensation to cut short his season long loan deal.

But Ten Hag believes he can bring some much needed physicality and natural aggression to an attack that needs to be bolstered following Cristiano Ronaldo's departure.

Additionally, the striker's attitude is something that United's scouting team have been impressed by. He prides himself on being among the fittest players among teammates, while character assessments have suggested that he has a driving desire to improve - aspects that will certainly be useful under the tutelage of Ten Hag.

Weghorst also developed a r eputation as a relentless presser during his time with German outfit Wolfsburg, again something that will come in handy at Old Trafford with Ten Hag attempting to introduce an intense pressing style since his arrival from Ajax.
