1. Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester United for £53m)

Manchester United paid more than £50m for a holding midfielder over the summer and are looking red-faced after Fred’s woeful start to the season.

Although he has a fine passing rate and a couple of direct involvements in goals, the Brazilian’s big money move to Manchester United, for now, seems to be the biggest transfer flop in the Premier League.

Fred has only league 10 appearances and hasn’t played on any of the last six matchdays. He has started only 2 games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and seems to be far from getting his place in the Manchester United starting eleven.
