Wayne Rooney has finally given Man United some stature up front.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has insisted that he has no regrets selling Danny Welbeck to Arsenal after the striker came back to haunt his old side and knock them out of the FA Cup, according to Henry Winter from the Telegraph.

Van Gaal was harsh with his reasoning when asked why he sold Welbeck earlier on in the season, citing his lack of goals wasn’t suitable for his team, and the Dutchman is still sticking to his guns.
Played as a central striker for the first time this calendar year by Arsene Wenger, Welbeck delivered and his winning goal was a feature of his all round display at his former stomping ground.
As the strikers at Man United continue to flounder, one would’ve thought that the England man would’ve got into the side ahead of the likes of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, but Van Gaal was adamant that he was happy with his striking options.
Welbeck has hardly been prolific at Arsenal, his latest goal making it eight for the season, but more chances in a central striking role may mean a better return for the 24-year-old.
