Clearly, Manchester United’s Louis Van Gaal was not crash hot on Welbeck given that he had more expensive and experienced alterntives. You don’t leave players who cost a weekly wage far in excess of Welbeck’s on the bench.

As for Wenger not being keen on Welbeck, well, that’s utter balls. Wenger, who was in Rome on Transfer Deadline Day, said:

“If I had not travelled that day, Welbeck would not be here. The coincidence made that because I was on my way. If I stayed at home, Welbeck would not be here today. I will tell you that story one day but that’s the truth.”

The Metro is reporting that had Wenger been in London, Welbeck would not have been bought. Can it be that Arsenal have no way to calling a man in Rome?
