Former Red Devils figure Gary Neville has analyzed the signings made by Manchester United since 2013 and argued that only two out of 33 players have succeeded.
“Manchester United have become a player graveyard. 75 per cent of transfers have failed. Only four or five are completely successful. It’s a horror story,” Neville said, speaking to Sky Sports.
The ex-England international has revealed the club spent €1.49bn on 33 players and only Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bruno Fernandes made it.
Subsequently, seven players (Cristiano Ronaldo, Matic, Maguire, Fred, Cavani, Shaw and Ander Herrera) had no negative impact, but neither did they confirm their full value.
The problem is that Neville considers the remaining 24 players to have failed completely. The total value of these players reaches 979 million euros.
In other words, she considers Paul Pogba, Alexis Sánchez, Lindelof, Fellaini, Mata, Bailly, Raphael Varane, Van de Beek, Alex Telles, Daniel James, Angel Di María, Jadon Sancho, Memphis Depay, Martial, Lukaku, Bissaka, Amad , Dalot, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Mkhitaryan, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger and Darmian were not worth the investment.
