This season, set to be the most disappointing league return for Manchester United in over two decades, has been littered with players linked with moves away from Old Trafford.
Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs supposedly heading for retirement, Nemanja Vidic heading to Internazionale and Patrice Evra heading to an unknown destination, things look set to change this summer.
And the latest player to be linked with a move away from the 20-time Premier League champions is long-limbed England star Danny Welbeck.
The 23-year old striker - who has scored eight goals in 21 appearances for the national team since 2011 - is said to be considering his options over disputes involving his preferred playing position.
Welbeck is thought to favour a central striking role, but is often played out wide in order to accommodate the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Javier Hernandez.
He would certainly command interest from a range of clubs, due to his impressive international record and European experience, and the chance of playing in Europe is something he is not necessarily guaranteed whilst still at Old Trafford.
He could be a hard working player for any Champions League club and, despite having two years left on his contract, could be the latest player seeking suitors elsewhere.
The United academy graduate questioned his David Moyes' comments, and could further make his mind up about vacating the reigning Premier League champions.
And assuming he has an impressive World Cup, more heads will begin to turn in Welbeck's direction, leaving him with plenty of options.
