Danny Welbeck seeking Manchester United exit

Danny Welbeck is seeking a Manchester United exit after his worst season ever from a personal point of view. Welbeck, 23, is frustrated about the amount of time he has been played out of position, and is still looking to move despite the arrival of Louis van Gaal.

The centre-forward has often been used out on the left-wing by both Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, but with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney both ahead of him in the pecking order, he has found his chances at striker limited.

He has proven that when given a decent run as the main striker he can score goals. Back in December when Rooney and Van Persie were injured, Welbeck started as the lone striker and managed to score six goals in six games.

Whilst speaking out on his future for the first time, Welbeck admitted that it had been his  “unhappiest season, without a doubt”, and he fears he’ll continue to be utilised out of position by Louis van Gaal.

He was then asked whether it had reached this point due to being played out of position, Welbeck replied:

 “Yes,” it does get frustrating.” He said. “You want to play in a certain position and you’re not getting the opportunity to do that. It’s the same for everyone else when they are being played out of position and they don’t really like it.”

Its tough for Danny, and I for one would like him to stay. Its rare that you get a United youth product who’s a fan of the club into the first team, and hopefully he’ll get the playing time he desires as a central striker. I honestly believe he still has an awful lot to offer the club, and if we sold him to a Premier League rival he could come back to haunt us.
