In more than two seasons leading Manchester United, coach Jose Mourinho brought in many expensive stars. But most of them failed. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in the first season to help MU win the League Cup and Europa League.
A serious knee injury caused Ibra to part with Old Trafford. However, this is still considered a successful contract of Jose Mourinho when “Red Devils” do not cost a transfer fee.
Nemanja Matic with the level of someone who has won the Premier League twice easily occupies the official position in the MU team. The Serbian midfielder has just extended his contract for another 3 years.
He want to thank to his important contributions to the “Red Devils” at the end of the season. This is also a relatively successful deal of “Special One” at Old Trafford.
Man City almost owns Alexis Sanchez in free form. However, this player changed his mind to join MU with a record salary. The time at Old Trafford was a nightmare for the former Arsenal star.
Sanchez played badly, was constantly injured and became a burden for the host team. He just left MU to join Inter in the hope of regaining top form. Coach Mourinho shortly after taking office reinforced Man Utd’s defense by recruiting Eric Bailly.
The Ivory Coast midfielder got off to a good start with 38 appearances in the season. However, this number fell sharply in the following seasons. Bailly does not contribute much and is often absent due to injury.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan is one of the factors that brought MU to the Europa League championship 2016/17. However, the player was eliminated by coach Mourinho only a year later because of lack of effort in training.
The two did not hesitate to attack each other on the media. After Mourinho was sacked, Pogba also played up and down. His contributions after 4 seasons are still not worthy of the money Man Utd spent.
