Besiktas deny Weghorst exit clause amid Man United links

Amid various speculations about the potential move of Wout Weghorst to Manchester United, Besiktas have come out with an official statement to clarify the situation.

There have been claims about the 6’5” striker, having a clause which enabled Premier League clubs to sign him even against the will of Besiktas, where he currently plays on loan from Burnley, for €25 million. That, according to the Turkish club, is not true.

“After the match of our football team against Kasımpasa in the Super League, there was a need to make a statement due to speculative news in the media about our football player Wout Weghorst,” the statement reads.

“The claim that there is an exit clause in our football player’s contract, stating that his contract can be terminated with a compensation of 2.5 million euros 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 Besiktaş Gymnastics Club.”

The 30-year-old has nine goals and four assists in 18 matches in all competitions for Besiktas this season.
