"He will have a terrific career and we are glad that he has placed his trust in us with his future."
Welbeck said: "I am really happy, there was never a doubt that this is where I want to be.
"I am enjoying every minute and learning so much from all the great players that are here. I would like to thank Sir Alex, the club and the fans for all their support."
