Welbeck still doesn’t know if he’s coming or going

It’s just three weeks before the start of the new season yet Manchester United’s teenage striker Danny Welbeck still does not know what colours he’ll be wearing come the big kick off. Sir Alex Ferguson had earlier indicated that he planned to send his 19 year old on loan for another season following his stint at Preston North End in the last campaign but Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is also keen to buy him outright. Welbeck is currently on tour with Ferguson in the United States and the issue is unlikely to be settled until the squad returns to Old Trafford.

Ryan Giggs should become the new face of United

Mention the name of Sir Bobby Charlton anywhere in the world and what’s the first thing that’s likely to come to mind? England 1966? World Cup Winner? The odds are that it will be neither of those because Charlton has been the face of Manchester United for years. As much as we all want him to stay around for many more, the great man will turn 73 in October and it’s only a matter of time before he will need to be replaced by a new club icon. So who could possibly be a better choice than Ryan Giggs, a one club legend who is likely to end his glorious career at the age of 37? It’s therefore a little disappointing to see speculation that Giggs could end up spending his retirement in the United States.
