Danny Welbeck wants to quit Manchester United

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck is keen to leave Old Trafford this summer after growing increasingly frustrated with his lack of game-time as a striker under David Moyes this season.

According to The Sun, the 23-year-old England international is unhappy at playing second-fiddle to first-choice strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, and does not want his career to stagnate by staying with the reigning Premier League champions.

“Danny can’t understand why the boss has failed to use him in an attacking capacity more often,” a ‘club insider’ reportedly said. “Those around him think he has become a ‘victim’ of the new regime.”

Welbeck has made 32 appearances this season, scoring 10 goals, but he has struggled to hit the net when deployed in an unfavoured wide role. Incidentally, on the six occasions Moyes played in the centre-forward position - because of injuries to Rooney and Van Persie - the Manchester-born striker scored six goals.

It’s believed that a host of Premier League clubs would be keen on signing Welbeck, who is expected to be part of England’s 23-man squad for the World Cup finals, this summer.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Tottenham are even weighing up a £20m bid for the striker, who has two years left to run on his current contract.

Spurs sources believe the Red Devils would be willing to sell Welbeck at the right price, with Moyes keen to revamp his struggling squad in time for the start of the 2014/15 campaign.
