Welbeck - Reading Interest?
One of the most unlikely, on the surface, rumours doing the rounds this morning relates to Danny Welbeck.
It`s being reported that the United forward, and England international, is wanted by Reading on loan for the remainder of the season.
Reading, as you are all well aware, are embroiled in a battle to secure their Premier League survival and their boss, Brian McDermott, views the acquisition of twenty-two year-old Welbeck as a key factor in possibly staving off relegation.
Now whilst, on the surface, many wouldn`t give the possibility of United letting Welbeck go out on loan, the news red-top that has instigated the article suggests that Sir Alex Ferguson is looking at it favourably and that the deal could be clinched by the weekend.
Personally, I`ll believe it when I see it!
