Now the dust has settled after the closing of the transfer window, we know our squad for the forthcoming season. Olivier Giroud is injured, so our available centre forwards are Yaya Sanogo and Danny Welbeck.
While Yaya Sanogo is a talent, he is raw and young. But Danny Welbeck, despite having his detractors, is an established Premier League player, someone who doesn’t need to acclimatise to the English game and is improving all the time. He has pace and with a role down the middle can cause teams all kinds of problems.
Criticisms include having a poor goalscoring record, having scored 20 goals in 90 games for Manchester United. People argue that a lot of those appearances have been as a substitute, and he’s been played out of position as Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie were the main men at Old Trafford.
So depending on your stance, you can put a negative or positive spin on his arrival at The Emirates.
So what do you think?
Have Manchester United made a mistake and will Danny Welbeck be a success at Arsenal? Or have Manchester United offloaded a misfit who can’t score goals and doesn’t have what it takes to be a consistent, regular goalscorer?
