Manchester United Boss David Moyes Begs Striker Not To Quit Old Trafford This Summer

Englishman is being chased by Spurs. 

Manchester United head coach David Moyes has insisted that he wants to keep hold of unsettled front man Danny Welbeck at Old Trafford next season, despite a mountain of recent speculation linking the player with a move away from the Premier League champions this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The England international is apparently unhappy at both his lack of regular first-team opportunities at the Theatre of Dreams so far in this campaign under the new United boss, as well as the fact that when he has been called upon by the Scot, Welbeck has been shunted out to an unfamiliar wide left position.

And as a result, speculation over the weekend was rife claiming that Welbeck had now had enough and has finally lost patience with Moyes, especially after being overlooked in favour of Portugal international Luis Nani to play in one of the visitors’ two wide positions against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

In fact, it is even now expected that rivals Tottenham Hotspur are set to line up a bid for the 23-year-old when the summer transfer window does reopen for business at the start of July, with Welbeck’s current deal in the north west running out in June 2016.

“Danny Welbeck is really important to me and I really value him,” said Moyes after watching the Red Devils go down 2-0 at his former club.

‘There have been lots of stories. I can only tell you Danny Welbeck is really important to me and really important to Manchester United.’
