Barcelona v Manchester United - UEFA Champions League Final
Manchester United have sold some of their best players in recent years

Manchester United have built a reputation as one of the greatest football clubs in the history of the game. All that is down to the legends that have passed through their doors. They also have been home to the likes of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, who have overseen their entire career at Old Trafford.

However, not every player who has played for the Red Devils has had the same destiny as Giggs and Scholes. Throughout the years, Manchester United have let go of some of their best players and have rued their decisions.

In this slideshow, we take a look at ten such football stars whom the club still regret selling.


#10 Patrice Evra

Manchester United v Aston Villa - Premier League
Patrice Evra left after signing a contract extension

Patrice Evra's eight-year trophy-laden spell with the Red Devils came to an end in the summer of 2014, when the club offloaded him in a mass exodus, just two months after he had extended his contract by a year. However, the spell that followed his departure was enough for United to rue his sale.

Manchester United brought in Luke Shaw from Southampton for £27 million. But little did they know that the player would be constantly marred by injuries and remain on the sidelines at Old Trafford. The youngster failed to become a worthy successor for the Frenchman, while United rotated the likes of Tyler Blackett and Daley Blind on the left most of the time.

Evra, on the other hand, had a relatively successful spell at Juventus, winning five titles and a Champions League runner-up medal. His departure also meant United lost one of their commanding leaders at the back.
