Ryan Giggs has categorically denied Manchester United are even considering selling Danny Welbeck in the summer.
In the weeks preceeding David Moyes’ dismissal, rumours emerged that Welbeck was contemplating his future which led to plenty of United fans worried at the thought of him leaving.
However, interim boss Giggs has swatted away rumours that Welbeck could leave United.
“We won’t be selling him,” Giggs said.
“We showed that the other night that bringing young players through is an important part of the club’s culture and history.
“We wouldn’t like to lose someone like Danny because he has done that, he has been here since eight or nine. So we want to keep him.”
Giggs might have only been interim boss but his ideas are reflective of the club. Letting Welbeck go would be a terrible idea.
Welbeck is still only 23 and has started to grow into his role at United in the past few years. Last year, he didn’t score many after being forced to play out wide more often than not but in Van Persie’s absence this season, he stepped up to the plate.
All Welbeck has to do is become more clinical in front of goal. When he has too much time on his hands, his finishing can be erratic (E.G. miss against Bayern Munich at home) but when he shoots on instinct (E.G. overhead kick against Manchester City or chip against Swansea), his finishing is top class.
There aren’t many more liked players at United than Welbeck and if he can have a strong World Cup, it’d set him up perfectly for next season.
