The 11 major signings brought to Old Trafford failed to live up top the billing, particularly failing to replace the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie.

Romelu Lukaku arrived Old Trafford from Everton for £75m but was offloaded to Inter Milan during the summer after a lacklustre 2018-19 season.

Many thought Angel Di Maria's £52m signing from Real Madrid in 2014 was going to be a hit, but he failed to replicate his form at the Bernabeu and was shipped to Paris Saint-Germain.
