Manchester United is one of the richest football clubs in the entire world. This is why Manchester United have signed many expensive football players over the past thirty years. Some of these stars played very well for Manchester United. However, there are a few signings who flopped at Manchester United.
The Argentine became the most expensive football player in British history after he joined Manchester United from Real Madrid. Manchester United fans felt that Di Maria would help the club to win the English Premier League title. However, he scored just three league goals for Man United. He is regarded as one of the most expensive flops in modern football.
Manchester United signed Memphis Depay from PSV a few years ago. He was probably the most talented young player in Europe at that time. However, Memphis Depay flopped at Old Trafford. He scored only two league goals for the club.
3. Bastian Schweinsteiger
Many fans were surprised when Manchester United decided to sign Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich in 2015. This is because the German star was already 30 years of age. He made just 18 appearances for Man United in the English Premier League. He left the club when Jose Mourinho was appointed.
He was a very talented football player when he joined Manchester United under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson. He was even compared to Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Bebe made only two appearances for Man United in the English Premier League.
