Danny Welbeck has been a part of Manchester United's senior team since 2008.
After completing loan terms at Preston North End and Sunderland, he was a reinvigorated player for Manchester United in the 2011-2012 season, partnering Wayne Rooney upfront and scoring 12 goals.
However the 2012-2013 season was a different story altogether.
With the arrival of Robin van Persie, Welbeck wasn't able to play in his preferred centre forward position that often.
With United’s wingers disappointing for large parts of the season, he was often deployed on the left wing, where his fast speed served him well.
But Sir Alex Ferguson himself has admitted that the player did not appreciate being played in a variety of roles.
In the absence of Wayne Rooney, he still got to play as a striker for England, a position he is most comfortable in.
But with the goal poaching skills of teammate Javier Hernandez, he often saw himself being kept on the bench for Manchester United while Hernandez was brought on.
Welbeck is one of the best young talents in the world, as he showed when he was picked to lead England upfront instead of the likes of Jermain Defoe and Darren Bent.
But Manchester United already have an abundance of strikers in their team and are also being linked with Robert Lewandowski, which will only further cut down the number of chances Welbeck will get to play as a centre forward.
Welbeck has already had a number of loan spells where he impressed and if he still can’t make it to the senior team he should take a look at his other options - maybe at a club where he’ll get more opportunities to play in his preferred position.
