Manchester United and more important Louis van Gaal has come under criticism not only for the performances of the club but also for the way the club have dealt in the transfer window. United have spent more than £250 million in three transfer windows but haven’t really gotten any players who have provided some great performances.
Transfers are some of the toughest things in the world of football and more often than not, you do not get the right performance early on at the start of a player’s career. With Manchester United struggling at the moment with their transfers, we look back at five players who were sold too soon during their careers at Manchester United.
5. Carlos Tevez
One of the best players to have played in the Premier League, the Argentine moved to Manchester United from West Ham United but after a loan deal for a couple of years, a final fee to be paid for the services of the Argentine could not take place.
Tevez didn’t hesitate and moved to their bitter rivals, who were growing in stature, Manchester City and helped them to a Premier League title but then had another spectacular fallout with then manager Roberto Mancini, nevertheless, the work rate and quality that Tevez provided was second to none and surely United could have done with his services.
