Transfer talks: Weghorst update, Liverpool’s midfielder hunt, and Barcelona interested in Pavard

Let’s see some of the transfer talks around the football world.


Besiktas director issues Wout Weghorst update amid Man United links

Besiktas sporting director Ceyhun Kazanci has provided updates regarding striker Wout Weghorst.

The Dutch striker is currently on loan from Burnley at Besiktas. Therefore, there is a problem with Manchester United seeking to sign him temporarily until the end of the season.

“I don’t understand why Weghorst said goodbye to the fans or why he made such a move,” Kazanci added, as reported by Fanatik.

“He currently plays football for us. The season’s finish marks the end of our contract. Manchester United will meet with Burnley if they want Weghorst.”

“Burnley will then get in touch with us to talk about the termination conditions. The contract will end if we agree to it. Otherwise, it will continue till the season finishes.”

“He cannot just leave. For us to agree to the separation, there must be compensation.”

“I’ll use an illustration. Burnley informed us that Weghorst was the subject of a contract with them. This can indicate a different ailment. Your share of the transfer fee is yours. Once we’re seated, we’ll discuss.”

These remarks follow Weghorst’s appearance to bid Besiktas supporters farewell over the weekend.

Barcelona interested in a summer move for Benjamin Pavard

Fabrizio Romano claims that FC Barcelona is currently displaying “solid interest” in acquiring Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard (26), who is available during the summer transfer window.

According to the Italian journalist, the Frenchman is a potential target. Still, it will depend on the terms of a potential move.

Romano further claims, citing information from the German press, that Barcelona has already been contacted. In 2024, Pavard’s contract expires.

Hasan Salihamidzic, the sporting director for Bayern Munich, acknowledged today that he has spoken with the player about staying with the Bundesliga team. He declared, “I don’t care whether Pavard is in communication with other clubs or not.”

Man United stance on Harry Maguire to Aston Villa speculations

Harry Maguire, a defender for Manchester United, anticipates staying at the club past the January transfer window amid persistent rumours of a possible switch to another Premier League club.

As a result of the excitement generated by a photo that appeared on social media of the England player at a bar in Lichfield, Aston Villa became the overwhelming favourite to complete the acquisition of Manchester United captain Harry Maguire.

This prompted media inquiries, and according to a report from the Manchester Evening News, individuals close to Maguire and United have deemed the rumours to be “laughable.” It’s thought that the centre-back went to The Belfry to play golf.

Liverpool’s midfielder hunt continues

Liverpool is interested in Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes, according to Ben Jacobs via GIVEMESPORT.

According to The Telegraph, Liverpool is eyeing a £44 million summer transfer for the Portuguese player.

Ben Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT that the transfer of Nunes “could be an example of Liverpool waiting till the summer and then moving.”

“Again, that would affect their January as well, but Nunes is unquestionably a guy Liverpool are interested in. The fact that he played for the football team this season makes it impossible for them to complete it in January. That’s one to keep an eye on.”

According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Football Italia), Liverpool wants to improve their midfield during the current transfer window by bringing Teun Koopmeiners from Atalanta into the fold.

The Dutch midfielder is capable of playing in central and defensive midfield. Atlanta will accept only a £35 million offer before they agree to let the play go.

James Pearce of The Athletic has claimed that Liverpool won’t be trying to keep Arthur Melo at Anfield permanently.

When he arrived at Anfield, the Brazilian midfielder was on loan from Juventus, and the Reds had a 30.1 million buy option to lock him down in England.

However, due to the former Barcelona player’s injury-plagued time with Liverpool, the team decided against signing him.
