Top 10 Worst Man United signings of the Premier League

Donny van de Beek's time at Manchester United may as of now be approaching its end after not exactly a year. 

The Dutchman joined from Ajax in the mid year however has scarcely included and is set for crunch talks with club boss Ed Woodward. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasn't enthused about Van de Beek, as indicated by the Daily Star, and that would propose why he has just begun two group games. 

United's recruitment over the years has purchased the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane and Jaap Stam to Old Trafford. 

In any case, they haven't all been hits – Sir Alex Ferguson unquestionably marked something reasonable of lemon. 

Since his takeoff the huge cash plan has likewise prompted some disappointing countenances showing up in Manchester. 


10. Donny van de Beek 


United paid an underlying £35m for the Dutchman which works out a £17.5m per association start. 

His signing was met with raised eyebrows given the appearance of Bruno Fernandes just eight months sooner. 

It was continually going to be trying to oblige the pair in a similar starting XI and so it has proved. 

Van de Beek may well proceed onward and be shocking somewhere else in light of the fact that his ability is verifiable, however it has been instance of wrong spot, wrong time. 


9. Eric Djemba-Djemba 

The Cameroon international was endorsed in 2003 as an expected replacement to Roy Keane. Reasonable for say it didn't turn out as arranged. 

He moved from French side Nantes for £3.5m yet was proceeded onward to Aston Villa 18 months later.

Djemba-Djemba showed up at Old Trafford, yet figured out how to guarantee a FA Cup champs award. 

His time in England didn't keep going long and when 2016 came around he was playing in the fifth level of Swiss football. 


8. Kleberson 

Kleberson was unvield alonside by Cristiano Ronaldo 

He showed up in Manchester as a World Cup victor and there was high expectations for the midfielder. 

United left behind £6.5m to sign the then 24-year-old from Atlético Paranaense. 

Kleberson has since uncovered that he simply moved to the club since Brazilian colleague Ronaldinho said he would before long be going with the same pattern. 

He wound up going to Barcelona and United just gave the midfielder 20 league appearances prior to moving him on. 


7. Radamel Falcao 

United caught Falcao on loan during a period of his vocation when he was terribly failing to meet expectations. 

The Colombian had been one of Europe's best marksman during productive spells at Porto, Atletico Madrid and Monaco. 

But he showed up in Manchester and battled for form in his single season. 

United paid his powerful wages, yet consequently they just received four goals consequently. His fortunes didn't improve a lot of when Chelsea took him on credit the following season. 

Radamel Falcao neglected to create his best structure 


6. Bebe 

United paid £7.4m to sign the Portuguese aggressor from Vitória de Guimarães back in 2010. 

Ferguson expressed that previous partner, Carlos Queiroz recommended him to the club. You puzzle over now whether he was having the Scotsman on. 

He showed up and invested a large portion of his energy out on loan. 

Bebe scored twice for United, however never in the league, with his strikes coming against Wolves and Bursaspor. 


5. Angel Di Maria 

Like Van de Beek, the Argentine was simply in Manchester at some unacceptable time. 

He was Louis van Gaal's marquee marking upon his appearance having recently been named man of the match in the Champions League last. 

United fans were licking their lips when he scored a venturesome chip against Leicester from the beginning, yet that was just about as great as it got. 

Di Maria and his family battled to get comfortable at Manchester, which wasn't helped by his home being burgled. 

He moved to PSG after only a year, yet there we have seen his quality on show once more. 

 

4. Mame Biram Diouf 

Ferguson asserted he'd been following the striker for a very long time before he ultimately marked him from Molde. 

He spent a further year in Norway prior to showing up at Old Trafford, yet he didn't make a big deal about an effect. 

Diouf scored only once for United, denoting the second with a somersault celebration in front of the Stretford End. 

He made nine appearances before some loan moves followed and ultimately a permanent way out. 

His crowning moment in Manchester came when he scored the victory for Stoke in a win over Man City. 


3. Massimo Taibi 

For quite a long time Ferguson attempted to no end to supplant Schmeichel in goal. He talked radiantly when he caught Taibi however, accepting he had discovered a diamond in Italy. 

His last one season in which he played four games. A now scandalous howler against Southampton setting him back. 

He likewise dispatched five of every a misfortune at Chelsea. 

The Italian's time at Old Trafford was short and anything besides sweet. 


2. Alexis Sanchez 



This is the move that most likely best summarizes United's gung ho way to deal with moves under Woodward. A vanity marking and that's it. 

They pipped rivals Man City to his mark yet he couldn't imitate his Arsenal structure in Manchester. 

United paid the Chilean £500,000-a-week and consequently saw him play multiple times and score five goals. 

He is presently at Inter Milan, however the way that the Red Devils are as yet paying a portion of his wages is recounting their awful decision when it came to recruitment.


1. Gabriel Obertan 

The Frenchman made a £3m move from Bordeaux in 2009 however just a brief time before he was proceeded onward to Newcastle. 

28 appearances and a singular goal was what Ferguson got for his investment although United figured out how to recover the cash they spent on him. 

Obertan was in no way, shape or form an accomplishment in the north east, however he went ahead as a sub when the Magpies beat the Red Devils 3-0 four months after he left Old Trafford.
