Manchester United had their fair share of stellar signings and some disappointing additions throughout their history - but what about those who lie somewhere in the middle?
Those who had a decent impact but didn’t quite make it at Old Trafford, or at least didn’t cement their places in the starting XI regularly enough.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s signings impressing since his arrival - what happened to those who didn't quite make the cut at United?
Fabio arrived at Old Trafford over a decade ago alongside twin brother Rafael and the tenacious pair quickly became fan favourites.
Sir Alex Ferguson was certainly a huge fan of the young duo but it was the former who had a decent career while the latter struggled.
Patrice Evra had a stranglehold on the left-back position and Fabio could not gain more than 56 appearances for the Reds.
Although he won two Premier League titles, the Brazilian defender was injury prone and couldn’t remain fit enough before David Moyes decided to pull the plug in January 2014.
Since then Fabio had spells at Middlesbrough and Cardiff before moving to France to join Nantes, with brother Rafael not far away plying his trade in Lyon.
Gibson was a United man through and through, rising through the academy ranks to play for the first-team under Sir Alex’s tutelage.
Unfortunately for him, the Scot had some incredibly talented players in midfield during his time such as Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher.
In search of first-team football Gibson moved to Everton during the 2011/12 season but he would only end up making nine more appearances than the 60 he made for United.
Sunderland came calling then Wigan and although he finally settled in the Class of 92’s Salford team, the energetic midfielder had a few months without football here and there.
Obertan ended up making 27 appearances for the Reds, scoring just once with his inconsistencies ending up costing him his position.
The 31-year-old Frenchman is now plying his trade in the second tier of Turkish football but he once had some promise.
Tall, pacy and capable of playing anywhere behind the striker, Obertan seemed to have the tools to succeed but never used them consistently enough.
After all, it would take a lot to drop the likes of Luis Nani, Ryan Giggs and Park Ji Sung.
Macheda scored that incredibly famous goal but struggled to kick on much after, despite being highly rated.
He clocked up 36 appearances so had a decent chance to solidify his spot in the starting XI but the pressure of the eyes of the world being on him proved too much.
It’s unlikely Wayne Rooney was ever going to be knocked off his pedestal either and a host of loan spells weren’t enough to turn Macheda’s form around. He now features for Greek side Panathinaikos Athens.
Wilson and Macheda should’ve arguably been United’s future strike partnership but unfortunately it never came to pass.
The young Englishman could handle the pressures of first-team football just fine but his poor luck with injuries meant he could never get a proper run in the starting XI.
Twenty appearances with United was all he could muster and he now plays for Salford, scoring twice in five appearances so far.
McNair’s versatility saw him make 27 appearances for the Reds but it was arguably his downfall as well.
The Northern Irishman could play anywhere in the back four as well as defensive and central midfield and so he was used rather sparingly as cover rather than an outright talent.
His time came to an end in 2016 under Jose Mourinho.
