What happened the last time Wout Weghorst faced Man United amid transfer talks
| Last updated
A video of the last time Wout Weghorst faced Manchester United has emerged online amid transfer talks regarding a shock loan move.
Weghorst has been strongly linked with a switch to Man United as Erik ten Hag looks to bolster his attacking options following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 30-year-old, on loan at Besiktas from Burnley, waved goodbye to fans following his goal during their 2-1 win over Kasimpasa.
He appears set to return to England, having impressed at the World Cup, where he bagged a stunning brace against Argentina.
And ahead of proposed loan to Man United, a clip of his last appearance against the Red Devils has surfaced online and it makes for impressive viewing.

Weghorst registered a brilliant assist in Burnley's 1-1 draw against Man United back in February 2022.
The towering striker received the ball then turned brilliantly to escape from Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay.
From there, he pierced a delightful ball to Jay Rodriguez, who completed the move with a goal.
Weghorst's assist against Man United sent social media wild as fans talked up their potential new striker.
One Twitter user referenced Marcus Rashford, writing: "Rashford breaking his goal scoring record this season."
A second wrote: "Our ST turned Maguire and McTominay inside out."
A third joked: "Crazy how I remember this match but I never noticed my guy."
A fourth commented: "If we had a better DM and CB I’m sure that wouldn’t have been a goal. Thank God for progress."
Another said: "This guy really exposed our defense."
If Weghorst signs for Man United, then a host of shirt numbers are available for him, other than No.7 which is 'promised' to another target.
But, in order for a deal to be completed, the Old Trafford club have to discuss with the player's parent club Burnley.
Besiktas director Ceyhun Kazanci explained: "If Man Utd want Weghorst, they have to discuss first with Burnley, who will then contact us.
"If we accept, loan will be terminated. Otherwise, it will continue until June. He cannot leave like this. There will have to be compensation for us."
