Gutted that Danny is going to AFC. When we were after Vermaelen, they didn't give him to us. Why? Because they didn't want to strengthen our weakest spot.

Yet we have no problem selling them one our most promising player for 16m to bring in a player on loan... sigh
Welbeck isn't the best finisher but is a very talented player and has been with us since he was a young kid.

That said, we have to be honest with ourselves. It's probably best for him to move on. Arsene will turn him into a world beater I'm certain and we'll regret it one day. But with Rooney, RVP and now Falcao, he really wasn't going to get much chances here in the near future.

And quite frankly I think Wilson has far more potential as a forward so we'll be okay too I guess.

We've let players like Pogba, Pique and G. Rossi leave from our academy for cheap/free and yesterday we sold literally one of the best playmakers in the world for 6 pathetic million pounds.
In comparison, welbeck's 16m price tag looks decent.
don't forget ron-robert zieler too
I think the reason we are selling him to Arsenal is because that is what he wants. Maybe the club is doing the right thing by listening to the player.
Tick tock 1 hour left to hear if Falcao signs and Welbeck goes.
Looks like Tom Cleverly to Everton has broken down.
Yea Cleverly is staying :(
We might want to keep hold of him for the squad anyway.

We don't have enough players for that department as it is. Cleverley is one of the problem players here but unlike Welbeck I think he has shown a lot more promise in the role required of him, might be worth keeping him on for another season or maybe until January, I do think Cleverley has more to give.
People might hate welbeck...but i really like the lad..he is out and out united kid..he loves the club..and he is not a bad striker as people make it look like...he has lot of good attributes. ..and I am sure he will succeed at Arsenal..I can only wish good luck to him..its sad to see these jome grown talents leaving the club..may be this is the only way to compete with every club..but I dont like what we are becoming...:(:(

Don't thinks a British utd manager would have sold him, especially to a rival. Hope lvg is not being naive.
not naive just ruthless. didnt think this would happen but makes sense. wenger has good faith in youth, linking up with wilshire and the ox. he doesnt nice flicks so i think he'll fit their style of football.

tho shame we're letting our home grown go. same with clevs. but the demands of PL make those cuts even harsher i guess. hoping wilson gets an opp especially if we play 3 up top.
Nick Powell (on loan) and Tom Lawrence (permanent) close to signing for Leicester (Twitter)

Read this a couple of times today. WTF is happening. Why the hell would we sell Lawrence? Wasn't he supposed to be a good player at least?
Surprised to hear Lawrence is departing... It was on SSN about a month and a half ago that he was set to sign a new contract.

This smells like bull, I've not seen this on BBC or SSN.

Yaldho is probably right though, not sure he will break into the senior team, was never fully convinced about him like I am about Wilson.
If we're talking about first team. Why are Young, Valencia, Cleverly and Anderson still in the team, and we are selling Welbeck, Shinji and Lawrence. This is just retarded :|
Wait its just been put on SSN.

Looks to be true. Good luck Lawrence, shame he doesn't look to be making it.
I dont think Lawrence is going to break in to the first team.
So with both Chicha and Welbeck leaving, Wilson will become our 4th Striker.

I thought Wilson looked good in that MK Dons game and to have Falcao,RVP,and Rooney in the squad, Wilson will surely learn a few things from them.
+2
Wilson is already a bigger goal threat than Welbeck lol, the boy is a prodigy, give him games and he will score, he has already done it at this level, he just has that special something that we saw from Pogba and Januzaj. He is ready for the senior squad.

Totally agree on the mentor part, Wilson could not ask for better people to learn from than Falcao, Rooney and RVP.
+1
Sad that Welbeck had to leave. But on the other hand I am happy for Danny tbh. At Arsenal he will get the games he needs to develop further.
Now that I think about it, with RVP, Rooney, and now Falcao (assuming he'll join us permanently next season) at United, strikers at the age of Welbeck and Hernandez might be better off elsewhere. RVP still has 2 good seasons in him, Rooney and Falcao have 4 good seasons in them, and for Welbeck and Chicha it's a critical time in their careers and they need game time. However it's a different story for Wilson, Henriquez, and even Powell. Theye're younger and less experienced, so they can wait 2-3 seasons to replace our current strikers. Maybe it's logical to have them as our back-up strikers, instead of Chicha and Welbz.
A buy-back clause on Welbeck's contract? please? :(
Welbeck to Arsenal is a bad deal because

1. He is a good player.
2. 16 mil very cheap for an England international.
3. It will strengthen Arsenal
+3
4. He is just 23(will turn 24 in November).
+2
Don't really like the move either, as he is also one of our players that has pace.
+1
At least now he will be regarded as a good player. A lot of people were hating on him cause he played for us.
Yeah it's disappointing:|
I loved me some Welbeck
But his goal threat, for a club like United, was actually pretty poor
I wasn't confident in our scoring chances when he was up front,
But if he was playing wide he was more exciting

Anyways, United needs to remain that club where the punishment for low returns is being transferred to another club.
United need to remain ruthless and then the killer instinct will return to the boys
We've got to be realistic.

We're selling them a striker that doesn't score goals.

Dont give me any nonsense about positioning he has played plenty of games up top and still cant finish to save his life, he is Bambi on ice in the box, no composure, no predatory instinct, not the natural goal scorer that Arsenal needed at all. More like an auxiliary winger.

Yeah the price looks cheap but he is our 4th choice striker and if truth be told I think Wilson could put him out the team already, he is that good, either way long term Wilson will certainly be the better player.

He clearly didn't fancy himself competing against our other forwards and wanted out as well, we cant particularly argue for a massive fee.

Yeah I suppose it does strengthen them but significantly? Is he even an improvement on their starting 11 once Giroud is back? I'm not convinced.

I think some of the reactions are a little silly...

I wanted us to rip Arsenal off but I cant see how anyone thinks he is worth £25+ million, that's just absurd, based on what exactly? His conversion rate? awful... His assists? awful...

Considering Sturridge went for £12 million who showed far more promise as a natural goal scorer the £16 million doesn't look bad at all.

Our fans are just not used to us selling players to other PL teams and the fact he is a home grown player means it doesn't sit well for some but there is no room for sentiment right now or irrational thinking, we cant afford to have players who are half in half out right now, either you're here for the cause and willing to fight for this club or you're out.

My two cents.
Good luck to him, maybe he can work on his finishing at Arsenal now.
5. Hes dat guy

@xgooner beat me to it.
@MUFC1990
I think you are being a bit hard on Welbeck. If given a consistent run in the team I can see him getting at least 15 league goals a season. He scored 4-5 in 6 games or something for us last season alone when both Rooney and RVP were out injured. He may not be a top finisher but he will score goals.
+1
OUT
Cleverley (Possible),Welbeck, Buttner, Hernandez, Kagawa, Vidic, Ferdinand, Giggs, Evra, Nani and MOYES
