Man United were right to sell to Arsenal, says former star

Manchester United were right to sell Danny Welbeck to Arsenal, according to their former goalkeeper Mark Bosnich.

The Red Devils allowed the England international to join the Gunners in a £16m deadline deal as it became apparent that their efforts to land Radamel Falcao on loan would end in success.

Since the deal has gone through a number of former United heroes have voiced their concern, with the likes of Gary Neville and Paul Scholes – who both played alongside the forward – adamant that their former side have made a big mistake.

However, Bosnich – who represented the club in the 1990s – feels that the decision makers at Old Trafford did the best thing for the player and themselves:

“From Danny Welbeck’s point of view, it’s the perfect move, when you look at the players he was in contention with at Manchester United,” he told talkSPORT.

“Man United have been very good. They could have been selfish and said, ‘you’re not going anywhere, just in case we get injuries’.

“That would have limited his playing time and that would have affected his chances with England.

“I think they’ve done the right thing by the player. They have also been very honest and said, ‘we’ve got Falcao, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. Your chances are going to be limited because of the way I’m going to play’. It’s being very fair to Welbeck.

“From the club’s aspect, as well, he was the most sellable asset.”

Welbeck could make his Arsenal debut against Manchester City on Saturday, fresh from scoring twice for England against Switzerland.
