Just under a month ago we learnt that Danny Welbeck was becoming increasingly frustrated with life at Manchester United under David Moyes, and the Manchester-born striker was considering his future. However today, according to the Sun, Welbeck is set to pen a new contract at the club.
The 23-year old was believed to have been frustrated about the lack of game time in the striker position, but with a new manager imminent, it looks as though Welbeck is set to stay at the club. Louis van Gaal, if appointed is a big believer in promoting youth and Welbeck will know this.
When given his chance up front for a regular run of games, Welbeck has proved he can score goals. Back in December both Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney were out injured, and Danny stepped in and scored six goals in six appearances.
He definitely deserves his chance as the main striker, and it must be frustrating when he finds himself stuck out on the wing all the time, so I do understand where he’s coming from. It would be a shame to lose him though. United are a club that pride themselves on promoting youth, and letting one of those youngsters go, would be gutting.
