Besiktas turn down the compensation package on Wout Weghorst offer that lead to in doubt for Manchester United in getting the Dutchman star.
‘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.’
‘However, the news that the player in question will leave the team on Tuesday is completely untrue.
The initiative regarding Wout Weghorst belongs entirely to Beşiktaş.
If there is a development on this issue, the information will be shared.’

This come after Besiktas turned down a financial offer from Burnley, which was designed to release Weghorst from his six-month loan deal at the Turkish club.
Weghorst joined Burnley less than 12 months ago for a fee of £12m but he scored just twice in 20 appearances for the Clarets.
The Dutchman has rediscovered his best form in Istanbul, scoring nine times in 19 appearances for Besiktas this term.
United are willing to pay Burnley a fee – which will be passed on to Besiktas – in order to secure Weghorst for the remainder of the campaign.
The Dutchman is keen on a move to Old Trafford and said goodbye to supporters after Besiktas’ league win on Saturday.
