Arsenal recently signed Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck in a £ 16 million deal, which appears to have pleased all parties involved. Arsenal failed that they have got a striker who is capable of becoming one of the best in the league for a relatively low transfer fee. This opinion has also made midfielder Jack Wilshere taken in direct jibe at United by saying that he would be never sold for such a low transfer fee. The fact that United allowed Welbeck to sign for a rival club knowing that he will probably be playing at the top level for the next decade has also surprised many.
At just 23 years of age, Welbeck still has a lot of time left to improve. Arsene Wenger has had a history of developing players with a lot of talent but without the right knowledge to put that on the pitch. One of the best examples is club legend Thierry Henry, who was largely an unknown quantity before he moved to Arsenal. He went on to score more than 200 league goals. Wilshere has long been regarded as one of the best young talents for the England national team. However, his poor performances in recent years may even force Arsenal into selling the player.
Wilshere is confident that even if Arsenal sell him, it will not be to a rival at such a low transfer fee. “Gary Neville knows what he’s talking about. He probably said what he said because Danny’s a Manchester United boy, he grew up there. In today’s market £16m is nothing really. With the quality Danny’s got, we have a bargain. There are not many players that leave one top club for another in England, especially English players. It’s unheard of really,” said Wilshere. Van Gaal, though, said that Welbeck was not good enough for United.

Even though the Spanish League has not even started Gareth Bale and Real Madrid already are splashing out the success they have achieved after defeating Sevilla and lifting the Super Cup in the home city of Bale in Cardiff.
It was a pretty dominating match for Real Madrid as the team of Carlo Ancelotti enjoyed having more possession, more shots at goal and just about everything in their favor. Gareth Bale was one of the standout players out of the entire pitch as the Welshman provided C.Ronaldo with a sublime cross which landed right in the space where C.Ronaldo was located as he only had to tap the ball into the net.
C.Ronaldo added another goal in the 2nd half which was the last goal of the entire match which was more than enough for Real Madrid to defeat Sevilla and lift the Super Cup trophy as Real Madrid secured their 1st major trophy of the season and Gareth Bale is expecting even more success when the season kicks off in a few weeks.
After securing the Super Cup, Gareth Bale expressed his feelings towards winning the Super Cup in his hometown at Cardiff as he said: “It was a special night for me being back in my home town. Playing in the Super Cup here, I thought it would never happen but it was great to be part of it and to win it. It’s quite surreal being back in Cardiff with Madrid but it was a night I truly enjoyed. It was a great atmosphere, the Welsh fans are always brilliant, everyone’s put on a great show and we’re grateful to win. We won two trophies last year and we’ve got one this year so we’re looking forward to the rest of the season.”
Real Madrid has spent around €110 in this summer transfer window which is the combined total after signing Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez. Having spent such an immense amount of cash in 2 players, the pressure is on to them and to the club to lift even more titles in the next campaign with C.Ronaldo and Gareth Bale expected to be the leaders in the pitch.
