Charlie Wellens has played his last game for Man United, ahead of the expiry of his contract.

Year after year, Manchester United have big decisions to make in regard to young players. There’s simply not enough places in the squad to keep everyone around.

At this time of the season, those choices are made. Some players are left delighted with new deals. Others are let go and made to move elsewhere. Well, one player who falls into the latter bracket this time around is Charlie Wellens.

The scoop comes from the Manchester Evening News. They state that the 20-year-old United man has ‘played his last game’ for the club, with the Reds set to let his deal expire.

United have not offered Wellens a new deal and he’s currently looking at other clubs ahead of his departure this summer.


Wellens played against Blackpool’s development squad on Tuesday, though was forced off the pitch through injury. That is thought to be his last action in Red Devils colours before he leaves.

The game was the U21s’ final match of the season, after a pretty underwhelming campaign in the PL2.

For Wellens, it’s now about considering his options ahead of the next move. He’s obviously got a future in professional football, though he has to plot his path carefully.

The defender needs to go to a club that believes in his ability and talent, while backing that up with genuine opportunities in regard to first-team minutes.

This is just the nature of the game at the professional level. Not everyone makes it at the elite standard. Wellens will have to trickle down to a lower level and try to work his way back up. I genuinely believe he has the talent to do exactly that.
