The Manchester-born forward, who has been drafted into the England squad for this summer’s World Cup has spoken of his frustrations at the way the club’s season has unfolded and has expressed his desire to leave.

He has come in for some heavy criticism this term as he has failed to hit the net as much as fans and critics would have liked, and he believes that the situation will continue into Louis Van Gaals reign.

Welbeck, speaking for the first time about the uncertainty surrounding his future, said he had started to feel disaffected because of his “frustrating” inability to establish himself in the central role he craves. It had been his “unhappiest season, without a doubt” and the player is concerned it will continue that way when Van Gaal takes charge after the World Cup.

“I’d like to play centrally,” he said. “I’ve been playing on the left for a while and it’s got to the time when I want to stake a place up front.”

With United’s pursuit of PSG striker Edinson Cavani likely to kick up a notch this summer, his comments have alerted Tottenham, who are in desperate need of fresh firepower following their own disappointing season.
