WHAT HAPPENED? The new signing will make his debut for the Red Devils after leaving Besiktas, with Antony and Marcus Rashford joining him in attack.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Manager Erik ten Hag explained the need for Weghorst, telling Viaplay: "I have been following him for a long time, all through his career. I have known him since he was 16 years old and everywhere he has been he has surprised. Yes, of course he is a player I have been scouting. He has shown at all his club that he could add something or strengthen something. He has an incredible mentality. Even defensively he can add value to a team.”



Expectations are pretty high...
