Welbeck contract talks stall

Manchester United's Danny WelbeckNegotiations between Manchester United and Danny Welbeck over a new contract for the striker are thought to have stalled according to The Sun.

The England international is in the last year of his deal at Old Trafford, and as such discussions over a long-term extension have been ongoing.

Welbeck currently earns £15,000 a week and is asking for his salary to be quadrupled to £60,000 per week.

Despite this, the Red Devils are said to be offering a deal at around £40,000 per week, which the sprightly forward will not agree upon.

Although a compromise is expected to be reached, the news is the latest in a number of homegrown players who have rejected new deals from Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.

Paul Pogba has already left United to join Italian champions Juventus, whilst Ezekiel Fryers is set to follow him out the door in a move to Tottenham.
