Wout Weghorst wants to stay at Manchester United beyond end of loan spell – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United striker Wout Weghorst has expressed his desire to remain at Old Trafford beyond the end of his loan spell.

Weghorst cut short his temporary stay at Besiktas when United expressed interest.

After a brief period of haggling between United, Burnley and Besiktas, Erik ten Hag finally got his man.

The Dutch striker has shown positive flashes in his first two appearances for United against Crystal Palace and Arsenal, although he admits more is needed from him.

Weghorst told AD via SportWitness that his main responsibility is scoring goals and that’s what the manager hired him to do.

The 30-year-old also revealed that he is aware of the doubters who question his ability to be United’s leading man in attack.

Weghorst said: “Of course (I want to stay), but first I have to make sure that I can be valuable to the team and this club.

“In the end, it is very simple. As a striker, you are judged by goals. He (Erik ten Hag) indicated that attack reinforcements were desirable.

“A striker, a 9. They were looking for a guy like that to add to the team. And then it’s simple. The best plays. I have to force him to play minutes”.

The Dutch international with 19 caps leaned on to make his mark at United and is determined to force his way to the top of the pecking order, despite competition from Anthony Martial up front.

He added that he has scored goals at every club he has been at and will continue to do so at United.

Weghorst is sure that the goals will come and will only worry when he starts to lose the great chances created for him.
