Danny Welbeck soon will be leaving MU

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck says that he had been considering Manchester United exit for a long time. The 23-year-old joined the gunners in the summer for a transfer fee of £ 16 million. The North London outfit believe that they have secured the player for a relatively low sum of money given that he is an England international and one who is just entering into the best years of his career. Welbeck, though, has divided opinion due to his poor goal scoring record. He will be coming up against United this weekend for the first time since leaving the club.

United manager Louis Van Gaal gave an honest assessment after selling Welbeck that his goal return was not enough to keep him at a club like Manchester United. Welbeck has responded to those allegations by saying that he would have done well if he had been played as a striker on a consistent basis. Instead, the versatility of the 23-year-old was utilised to the maximum after he found himself playing on the left wing more often than not. Welbeck has been in decent goal scoring form for club and country this campaign. He recently scored a brace for England in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

He says that the lack of consistent first-team football means him consider United exit a year ago.“When you’ve been somewhere for so long and then you’re going to start a new chapter in your career, you’ve got to think about it a lot. Over the past year or so, I started to think about what’s best for me.At the time I was playing on the left wing a lot and in a 4–4-2, which is very difficult for me because I can’t make an impact on the game,” said the former United striker.
