The fact that Alexis Sanchez officially left MU to Inter has created the most expensive “leaving” squad in Premier League history both in fees and wages.
Alexis Sanchez finally ended the nightmare at MU by early termination of a 2-year contract to switch to Inter in free form.
When MU spent over £ 500,000 a week for Sanchez, they believed he was the missing piece in the squad. But after 2 and a half years there are only 3 goals in the Premier League, which is one of the most failed signings in the tournament’s history.
These include the most expensive failures in Premier League history, from Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa, MU midfielder Di Maria to Shevchenko or Torres at the Blues.
Kepa Arrizabalaga arrived at Chelsea as the most expensive goalkeeper in history for a fee of £ 71.6 million. But less than 2 years later, they are trying to push him away after a series of unacceptable mistakes.
In defense, Winston Bogarde came to Chelsea from Barcelona for a salary of £ 40,000 a week, a huge sum at the beginning of the century. For one thing, the Dutchman often befriends the bench, playing only 11 times in 4 years.
Meanwhile, Eliaquim Mangala cost a huge transfer of City up to 43.5 million pounds, while receiving 12.5 million pounds of salary. As a result, the club has to pay an average of £ 1 million for each midfielder’s appearance.
For Phil Jones, MU spent nearly 20 million pounds for former Blackburn star, the number in 2011. But in nearly a decade, he only played 165 times in the Premier League and still receive a salary of 75,000 pounds per week.
In midfield, Juan Veron became the most expensive player in Premier League history for a fee of £ 28.1 million to Man Utd in 2001. After two unimpressive years, he was sold out to Chelsea.
In the case of Alberto Aquilani, Liverpool spent £ 18 million hoping to replace Xabi Alonso. However, the Italian midfielder, although earning more than £ 100,000 a week, plays only 18 matches in the Premier League. Liverpool finally pocketed a mere £ 2 million when sold.
Premier League champion with Leicester, Daniel Drinkwater eventually became a commodity for Chelsea, the team had to spend 34 million pounds on the transfer fee and 100,000 salary per week just to see the midfielder sit on reserve and loan. .
Man Utd must feel regret when he spent 59.8 million pounds for Angel Di Maria. The former Real Madrid star does not deserve the huge salary of £ 280,000 per week.
The same thing happened to Alexis Sanchez, who cost the “Reds” £ 59.4 million in wages.
Chelsea is suffering with strikers Fernando Torres and Andriy Shevchenko. The first one costs £ 50 million and the salary is 150,000 euros, while the second costs £ 30.8 million and the salary of £ 190,000, but ultimately only “left” with the adventure failed.
