The general consensus is that Manchester United needs to bring in some new blood and rejuvenate their squad, as Sir Alex Ferguson has done successfully so many times over the past two decades.
Everyone, myself included, has been looking across the premier league and the rest of Europe for the next big name; however, it appears that one of the most talented youngsters primed to become the next star at Old Trafford is a player who, much to the Glazer family's relief, they won't have to spend a penny on.
Danny Welbeck is only 20 years old and has represented England at under 17s, 18s, 19s and 21s. With his opportunities in Manchester limited to preseason friendlies and the Carling Cup, Sir Alex loaned his talented forward to Steve Bruce's Sunderland in the summer and has made a big impact in the short time he's been at the stadium of light.
Due to injuries to first choice strikers Darren Bent and Asamoah, Gyan Welbeck got his chance and hasn't looked back. He has four goals in his last three games and has had some superb performances, and Welbeck will already be in Ferguson's good books, having already helped is parent club.
Welbeck was man of the match and capped his brilliant performance with a well deserved goal in a stunning 3-0 thrashing of champions Chelsea at Stamford bridge, aiding United's title push.
But what to do for an encore? How does this sound?
Welbeck was on target twice against Everton, stealing his side an undeserved point. And on Saturday, Welbeck kept up his scintillating form with a brilliant equalising header in a losing effort at Wolves—showing he has a great all round finishing ability against all-comers.
Explosive pace and lethal finishing has Danny Welbeck the talk of the Premier League and if he can turn this incredible run of form into his regular level of quality, not only will he be back in Manchester and in the squad, he'll be one of the most dangerous attacking players in the country.
Combined with the likes of Rooney, Nani and Berbatov, he could be part of a special attacking force that could rule the Premier League for years to come.
