Sunderland became the latest club to signal their interest in bringing Welbeck to the club from Manchester United, reports the Daily Mail.

Just a few days ago the club interest was coming from Hull with a 12 million offer. Welbeck continues to consider what his playing time with United will be as the offers keep rolling in.

Welbeck will not play in Manchester United's Premier League opener against Swansea City on Saturday due to a knee injury.

Manager Louis van Gaal confirmed the situation Friday, a disappointing development for Welbeck, who may have been in line for a start with Robin van Persie deemed unfit following only minimal training after the World Cup.

Welbeck (knee) is being targeted by Hull who are looking to capitalize on the uncertainty of what role the striker will have under manager Louis van Gaal, reports the Daily Mail.

The move probably wouldn't make sense for the young striker's career as he will be looking to regularly challenge for titles and Champions League matches. His potential lack of playing time under the new manager could influence a decision, though. Hull have asked about Welbeck's availability, and no formal bid has been lodged or accepted at this point.

Welbeck suffered a knee injury during Saturday's match against Real Madrid in the Guinness International Champions Cup, the club's official website reports.

Welbeck was in position to possibly earn a spot in the starting XI for the Premier League opener against Swansea City on Aug. 16, as Robin van Persie is unlikely to be fit after just resuming training Monday. If Welbeck and van Persie can't go, Javier Hernandez could get the opening start up front.

Welbeck could start Manchester United's Premier League opener Aug. 16 against Swansea City after manager Louis van Gaal said Sunday that Robin van Persie would not play after just beginning training Monday, ESPN FC reports.

Welbeck showed last season that he's a capable fill-in for RVP, although once the latter is fit, it's tough to see the former getting many starts.

Welbeck, who left Tuesday's training session with a hamstring injury, participated in full training Thursday and he is expected to be available for Saturday's World Cup match against Italy, the Daily Mail reports.

With Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge above him on the depth chart, it's unclear how much playing time Welbeck will get, even when he is fully fit. Italy pose a very daunting first test, one that doesn't figure to be high-scoring.

England may be without Welbeck (thigh) for their opening match against Italy after the striker left practice on Tuesday early, reports Sky Sports.

The England squad will leave their Brazilian training base for Manaus on Thursday. While there is a chance Welbeck could make it, the signs don't look good after leaving Tuesday's practice early with a limp.

Reports have surfaced suggesting that Welbeck is looking to leave Manchester United due to a lack of playing time, and being deployed on the wing, according to Sky Sports.

Manchester United manager David Moyes said Welbeck is really important to him and the team, and he really values the player. Welbeck has made 32 appearances this season, and came on as a second-half substitute in the 2-0 loss to Everton on Sunday.
