Welbeck Goes to Arsenal

Welbeck Goes to Arsenal

Not that long ago, the intimation was there that Danny Welbeck could leave Old Trafford, providing he didn`t move to one of our title rivals.

Well that proviso appears to have been sacrificed after it was announced last night that the England international striker had joined Arsenal, for a fee said to be in the region of £6 million.

I`m guessing that the sale limitation was lifted for either one of two reason, or perhaps both, namely:-

1 - The arrival of Radamel Falcao meant that Welbeck had no future at Old Trafford and the arrival of the free-scoring Colombian meant that United were confident they will out-score any side they are matched against.

Or

2 - Having spent so heavily in the past week or so, United just had to recoup some many and it didn`t really matter where it was coming from.

Either way, Welbeck is now history and although he was never a free-scoring striker at Old Trafford, probably because he was played out of position so many times, I`m of the opinion he`ll do very well down at Arsenal.

Shame he's gone he'll do well at arsenal as he'll get more time on the pitch in his preferred position. Rather than spending most of his time being shunted about the wings good luck to him (though not against us)

It's always sad to see local lad and academy graduate go, all the best to him and hopefully he fulfills his potential at Arsenal. We hired Van Gaal to restore us to the top and make the tough calls that are needed along the way and, considering Louis is a man whom holds the notion of a club developing it's own players dear, I imagine there was no tougher call than to determine whether Danny stays or goes. If we're going to be brutally honest if it wasn't for the sentimental reasons of Welbeck being a local lad and academy graduate he would've been discarded a long time ago, despite him having the makings of a good striker he's never really stood up to be counted for. Ultimately if he was born anywhere else in the world he would've gone much sooner like Zaha.
