Solskjaer and MU are eager to enter the new season, with 3 big additions Jadon Sancho for £ 76.5 million from Dortmund, Raphael Varane (£36 million) and the shocking return of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus.
After an encouraging start, a streak of five defeats in seven Premier League games cost Solskjaer his job last November. At that time, MU was 12 points behind the leading team.
Now, under coach Ralf Rangnick, the Red Devils leave Man City 20 points behind, are in 6th place and do not know if they can earn tickets to the Champions League next season or not.
Very few MU players have remained consistent this season and that is reflected in their significantly reduced market value as recently announced by Transfermarkt this week.
Marcus Rashford dropped the most , down nearly 18 percent, from a valuation of £76.2 million to £62 million.
The second biggest loser was Ronaldo – £9m (£40.5m to £31.5m).
And the expensive contract (80 million pounds) did not cut into pieces of MU, Harry Maguire, which had plummeted by 43.2 million pounds, continued to lose 7.2 million pounds (to 36 million pounds).
Two other MU signings in the summer, Varane, both dropped 4.5 million pounds.
MU’s most valuable player at the moment is still Bruno Fernandes, who has the same price of £ 81 million with 2 Man City stars, De Bruyne and Phil Foden.
However, in the bleak picture there is still positive news for MU, with young star Anthony Elanga seeing the biggest increase in value – up 275% from £3.6m to £13.5m thanks to performances. impressive performance under Ralf Rangnick.
