Former Arsenal and Cheslea man Cesc Fabregas has singled out three players at Manchester United who he believes have tarnished their careers by joining up with the Red Devils.

The Spaniard was speaking to BBC Sport about the situation at the club when he mentioned several current squad members whose careers took a nose dive after joining the club.

Their torrid form for a majority of the season, however, has had some call certain into question.

Fabregas spoke about three of them.

The Man Utd players floundering

He said: “Casemiro won Champions League after Champions League at Real Madrid. He was the best defensive midfielder in the world and then he goes to Manchester United and looks like a completely different player.

“Look at [Jadon] Sancho. He's not doing well at United, he goes to Dortmund and he looks again like the player we all thought he was going to be.”

“Look at the midfielder that impressed for Morocco at the World Cup [ Sofyan Amrabat], he was fantastic. And then he goes to Man United and he's not been the same player.”

Fabregas continued “Obviously it makes me think that something is wrong there. It's not a coincidence that three top, top players come in and they are not good all of a sudden.”

Despite the established names falling below the mark, the club have some bright youngsters among their side.

Kobbie Mainoo is one of several young stars in the United squad who have been shining lights in what was otherwise a difficult year. Alejandro Garnacho is another to have continued performing well in what was an underwhelming campaign.
