Man Utd boss Moyes hoping to keep hold of Welbeck
Manchester United manager David Moyes has said that he is keen on keeping striker Danny Welbeck at the club, despite rumours that the England international is hoping to leave at the end of the season, reports ESPN.
In recent days, speculation has been rife that Welbeck is hoping to leave Old Trafford to join a club where he would be given a chance to play as a central striker, having grown frustrated at his lack of opportunities to play in his preferred position.
But Moyes, who has handed 33 appearances to Welbeck, insists that he is hopeful of keeping the forward, and that he is still involved heavily in his plans for the future. Speaking after his side’s 2-0 defeat at Everton, the Scot said: "Danny Welbeck is really important to me and I really value him.’
Welbeck, who began his career with Man Utd and made his debut in 2008, has started fewer games since the arrival of Juan Mata in January, and the rumours about his possible departure - some of which alleging that his relationship with Moyes has deteriorated - have not been denied by his representatives.
