Danny Welbeck is an intriguing figure and we mean that in the nicest way possible. He was always being groomed for the top of the mountain in English football, and contrary to popular belief, we think he’s lived up to the hype. While there have certainly been a few stumbles along the way, the same can be said of many top stars who are now enjoying great success on a European and world stage. We aren’t about to suggest that he’s the second coming of Henry or anything like that, but you get our point.
He started off his time with Manchester United fairly well before going on to something new, mainly because he was stuck in something of a rut. He also started off his tenure with the Gunners quite well, too, and some would say he’s never really had an extended bad spell.
As you can see by the title the latest rumblings are suggesting that the Englishman could be on his way out of the Emirates, being allowed to leave on a free transfer. That’s a cruel, cruel blow for a guy who had been coming on leaps and bounds, especially because there seems to be no clear replacement for him.
When he returns from his current injury setback he needs to be afforded the chance to prove what he can do. Otherwise, what are we even doing here? Welbeck has given his all to the club and it feels like Unai Emery somewhat owes him for that, mainly because he was actually scoring goals as well as putting in a good shift. It’s an exciting time to be a part of Arsenal Football Club, and he was there when it wasn’t – but he was always there are thereabouts as someone who had the potential to pop up with a goal now and then.
We can’t change the past and we can’t dictate what’s happening in the future, but at the very least, you can’t allow him to leave on a free. That’d be a massive loss not only for logistical reasons but also because there are several clubs who would jump at the chance to pay a good fee for him. If they don’t go out and discover those possibilities, then that’s their own fault.
