David Beckham: sad to see Welbeck leave Manchester United
David Beckham says he is sad to see Danny Welbeck leave Manchester United but believes he will shine at Arsenal.

Striker Welbeck, who came through the Old Trafford youth system, joined the Gunners for £16m on transfer deadline day.

"Arsenal have a very good, young talented English player," said former United midfielder Beckham.

"To see him leave Manchester United is sad. He had been there since he was eight and his heart was in Manchester."

Welbeck is currently away with the England squad ahead of their friendly with Norway on Wednesday as they prepare for next Monday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland.

"The biggest bonus is for Danny Welbeck," said England boss Roy Hodgson.

"When you are a player of his calibre and find yourself at United with competition for places, you don't always get the starts you would like.

"He is going to a club where he will hopefully get more starts and playing time."
