Would United fans really be sad if Fergie CASHED in?

Danny WelbeckManchester United striker, Danny Welbeck is currently enjoying a fruitful loan spell at fellow Premier League club Sunderland. “The England Under-21 international now has three Premier League goals to his credit with the Stadium of Light club after going from a bit-part player to key figure on Wearside” Is he finally getting the attention of United fans, who up until now thought the young forward would never make the grade.

Weeks ago, even Sunderland supporters would have been forgiven for thinking Danny Welbeck was only in the side as part of his loan agreement with Manchester United. The conspiracy theorists were silenced on Monday night after the 19-year-old striker scored his second and third goals in two matches to keep Sunderland in the hunt for Europe.

At this moment in time Welbeck is slowly but surely making a name for himself, and questions are being raised as to whether United fans would be sad to see the young forward leave. If the England U-21 striker continues in his current rich vein of form then I’m sure United fans would welcome him back, but probably only a second choice striker.


Welbeck’s display against Everton has prompted Sunderland’s fans to urge their manager to sign him, however Bruce has admitted the England Under-21 international’s form could make it difficult to persuade Sir Alex Ferguson to sell. If Ferguson is keen to keep the player then I’m sure United fans will rally and support their manager.

However, I’m certain United fans would jump at the chance to offload the young striker if there was a chance of signing a proven world class forward. I’m also aware of the fact Welbeck has stated that he is eager to continue his development and is happy to play for Sunderland. With Bruce willing to make the move permanent and Welbeck enthusiastic about a possible future with the Black Cats, United fans don’t seem to have the slightest bit of interest, thus alluding United fans wouldn’t mind at all if Welbeck was to ply his trade elsewhere.
