On-loan Stadium of Light player does not know if he will be a Old Trafford regular next season.
On-loan Sunderland striker Danny Welbeck is not sure if he will still be a Manchester United player next season.
The 20-year-old has enjoyed a fine season-long loan in the North-East, scoring six goals in 20 starts and earning up a call-up into the England senior squad.
He has impressed so much that the Black Cats manager Steve Bruce would love to sign Welbeck on a permanent deal.
But with the emergence of Javier Hernandez joining the established duo of Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov, Welbeck may struggle to get a look-in.
But the Mancunian will head back to his home-town club and try to impress the manager, Sir Alex Ferguson.
“I’ve loved my time at Sunderland,” he said.
“It’s benefited me so much as I’ve just gained invaluable experience playing week-in, week-out in the Premier League and mixing it with the big boys.
“I’ve learned so much and I’m hoping to improve again.
“I’m just looking to get my fitness back up at the start of pre-season and crack on,” he added. “I’ll just do what I can and hopefully do my best.”
