Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in Europe. They have a reputation for bringing up huge talents. Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Paul Scholes are just but a few talents who have been made in Manchester. These are reputable players who have caught the eyes of the world of football for a long time. Despite this, some players have found themselves losing the football touch at Manchester United. Playing for the club comes with high pressure to deliver. Some players have failed to do this at the club but are doing better elsewhere. Jesse Lingard could be another case of such caliber at Man United. The midfielder shone yesterday as West Ham scores three goals past Aston Villa. He scored two goals and gave a man of the match performance. Here are 5 players whose careers have come back to life after leaving Manchester United.

1.      Memphis Depay

The attacker had shown much promise at PSV Eindhoven. He had been labelled as the next Cristiano Ronaldo due to having an identical style of play with the icon. However, things turned for the worst at Manchester United. Despite being good in footwork, his finishing became poor. He was also labelled as a 'selfish’ footballer. He eventually left for Lyon in France. His career has flourished once again to a point where Barcelona even wanted to sign him. He is arguably the most important player in the Lyon squad.

2.      Marouane Fellaini

He was signed by David Moyes after taking over from Ferguson. He failed to keep his Everton form. He was labelled as the slowest footballer in the squad with a section of fans calling him lazy. He eventually left for Shandong Luneng in China. He has scored some important goals for the club and is an important first team member.

3.      Chris Smalling

He played as a center back since the Sir Alex Ferguson days. A trophy drought followed and the defense was mostly blamed for conceding cheap goals. Chris Smalling was one of them for a number of seasons. He eventually left when Ole took over. At As Roma, he is a key defender and has seen his top form back.

4.      Romelu Lukaku

He is breaking records at Inter Milan. Two seasons ago, he was a Manchester United player. He is one of the players who faced utmost pressure from the fans due to his inconsistency and poor first touch. He made a decision to leave despite Ole wanting to keep him. He is now flourishing at Inter Milan and his first touch is no longer an issue.

5.      Angel Di Maria

He was signed under Luis Van Gaal from Real Madrid. Much was expected from him but he failed to adapt to the EPL. He left for PSG after one season. Since then he has been scoring goals, assisting and winning trophies season in season out.
