Manchester United have developed a culture of signing players from the Germany Bundesliga side, Borrussia Dortmund. Are all players from Bundesliga over hyped? Not really. There are some players who came to the Premier League and did wonders. The likes of Leroy Sane!
Today, we will specialize on Borrussia Dortmund players who flopped at Manchester United:
The Armenian footballer joined Manchester Unites from Borrussia Dortmund in 2016. Mikhitaryan struggled to establish himself under manager José Mourinho in the Premier League.
Henrik Mikhitaryan scored 13 goals and got 14 assists under his name in his 79 appearances as a Manchester United player. 27 goal contributions is very small tally in the given number of matches.
After failing to please the Manchester United management, he was sold to Arsenal in a swap deal with Alezis Sanchez.
Kagawa joined Manchester United from Borrussia Dortmund in 2012. He was among the last players to be signed by Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
The Japanese international had a fantastic season with Dortmund hence Man United splashed £17 million cash for his services.
The midfielder flourished on his first season and he took home the match day ball after scoring a hat trick against Norwich City.
Overall, Kagawa scored only 6 goals in 38 appearances in Manchester United's jersey. Before joining Man Utd, the attacking midfielder scored 21 goals in 49 matches.
Two years later, Shinji Kagawa returned back to Borrussia Dortmund but he didn't had his previous spark.
We have seen Jadon Sancho struggling to make his impact felt at Manchester United. Will he be like his predecessors from Borrussia Dortmund?
