Wout Weghorst has been making headlines recently after driving to Manchester United’s training ground following a ‘This Is Anfield’ sign storm. The Dutch striker, who plays for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, was spotted in the passenger seat of Fred’s car as the Brazilian midfielder drove Bruno Fernandes to the club’s Carrington training complex.
The incident has sparked speculation that Weghorst could be on his way to Old Trafford, with reports suggesting that the Red Devils are interested in signing the 27-year-old. Weghorst has been in impressive form for Wolfsburg this season, scoring 15 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions.
The ‘This Is Anfield’ sign storm occurred when a group of Manchester United fans drove past the club’s training ground with a banner that read ‘This Is Anfield’. The banner was a reference to the famous sign that hangs outside Liverpool’s Anfield stadium.
The incident has been widely condemned by both Manchester United and Liverpool fans, with many calling for the perpetrators to be punished. It is unclear whether Weghorst was aware of the incident or if he was simply in the car with Fred and Fernandes.
Weghorst has been linked with a move to Manchester United in the past, with reports suggesting that the Red Devils are keen to add the Dutchman to their squad. The 27-year-old has been in impressive form for Wolfsburg this season, and his arrival at Old Trafford could be a major boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Weghorst’s arrival at Manchester United could also be a major boost for Bruno Fernandes, who has been in sensational form since joining the club in January. The Portuguese midfielder has been a key figure in the Red Devils’ resurgence this season, and the addition of Weghorst could help to further bolster the club’s attacking options.
Only time will tell if Weghorst will make the move to Manchester United, but the Dutchman’s presence at the club’s training ground has certainly sparked speculation. It remains to be seen if the Red Devils will make a move for the 27-year-old, but one thing is for sure – the ‘This Is Anfield’ sign storm has certainly added an extra layer of intrigue to the transfer saga.
