The former Red Devils star - who won the treble in 1999 - was stunned by Louis van Gaal's transfer decision, and believes Arsene Wenger has secured something of a bargain by bringing the 23-year-old to the Emirates.

Yorke pointed to other deals completed over the summer, like Luke Shaw's £27m move from Southampton and Adam Lallana's £25m switch to Liverpool as evidence that Manchester United let Welbeck leave on the cheap.

He feels that the England international will prove his true value in a central striker role for the Gunners, having already netted a hat-trick for his new club against Galatasaray in the Champions League.
