Having come through the ranks at Old Trafford together, Cleverley was happy to have seen Welbeck sign a new contract last month and the midfielder is hopeful that the two can produce the same kind of chemistry that garnered praise for both early last season, this term.
Speaking to Inside United Cleverley, who signed a new deal last October, said:
“It was great to see Danny sign a new deal. It’s a big boost for us, he’s a fantastic player and someone the manager has great faith in.
“We’ve come up through the ranks together – we know each other so well and how each other plays and hopefully we can get some more game time together.
“We played some good stuff together last season but got injuries at different times and didn’t get many chances to play together after the first few games. Hopefully that will change this season.
“Danny is a top-class striker and I think he can do big things for both United and England.”
