Van Basten questions Man Utd bid for Weghorst; warns against too many Dutch

 Dutch great Marco van Basten has questioned Manchester United's move for Wout Weghort.

The Burnley striker is waiting for Besiktas to release from him from his loan to allow him to move to Old Trafford.

But Van Basten told De Telegraaf: "I have my doubts about that.

"Take a look at Luuk de Jong. That is really a striker who you can play through the air and where you can then go for the second ball. I don't think Weghorst is that strong in that regard. He can score a header, but he is more of a boy who does things in his enthusiasm."

Van Basten also questioned the amount of Dutch United are signing.

"I do indeed question that. I think that can become dangerous if you have too many Dutch people and things are not going well. You also saw that at Barcelona, when they had five Dutch people, work against you. Ten Hag has to be careful with that."
