Yeah having a far better manager helps too.Di Maria, £59.7m for 32 games; Depay, still only 27 and only played 53 games for them; Lukaku, £75m (plus £15m add-ons) for 96 games and he’s still only 27; Sanchez, £30.6m and £350k/week (which they were still paying him for a year while he was at Inter) for 45 games.
They were all good players. A good management team would have integrated them into their squad and kept hold of them. They might moan less about how “big” City’s squad is if they’d been running their squad properly.
But United are a sacking club now and they’ve not found a management team good enough to integrate them in their, what is it?, four managers since Ferguson left?
