Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal prefers to keep mum on the speculation surrounding the future of Danny Welbeck.
Media reports claim the England international striker is among three of the club’s stars set for a loan move away from Old Trafford.
Speaking ahead of Sunday afternoon Premier League game at Sunderland, Van Gaal insisted he would treat the striker’s situation as a private matter.
“(The Press) are talking,” the Dutchman said on Friday. “I know what I have said to Danny and Danny knows exactly what I said to him. I think the media is guessing- they were not in the room.
“I won’t speak about it. That is private. I assume Danny is not saying anything about our conversation and he hasn’t said anything either, and I think that’s the way it should be. I am happy with it this way.”
Ex-United midfielder Steve Bruce is reported to be keen on signing the striker at Hull City while Sunderland are also keen on landing the Englishman on loan for a second spell.
