1. Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk – Manchester United).
What exactly is Fred’s position supposed to be? Is he a box-to-box attacking midfielder or a defensive shield that guards the back? The fact is that we don’t know. The Brazilian is unfortunate in that he joined when Jose Mourinho was having an existential crisis. However, Fred cost over £50 million. You need to show signs of making an impact.
Instead, he’s dropped behind Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira in the squad. Even with a new manager in Ole Gunnar Solksjaer he still hasn’t managed to impress and find form. He’ll probably get a chance next season, but he was a definite flop for the Red Devils.
