u80view take a look at some players who left old Trafford for a better life and how they perform out there.

They say the grass is always greener on the other side - but is that really the case?

5. Henrikh Mkhitaryan (to Arsenal for £30m, 2017/18)

Mkhitaryan technically joined Arsenal as a direct swap for Alexis Sanchez but agent Mino Raiola insisted on a player sale. The Armenian has failed to deliver at the Emirates but is currently going through a career renaissance with AS Roma

4. David Beckham (to Real Madrid for £33m, 2003/04)

The Englishman left at Old Trafford after a well-documented falling out with Sie Alex Ferguson. While he was definitely a commercial success in Madrid, Beckham's career at the Bernabeu was full of unsuccessful seasons.

3. Angel Di Maria (to PSG for £56m, 2015/16)

Di Maria's wife hated life in Manchester and the Argentine left at Old Trafford after just one season. While the 32-year-old remains an important player for Paris Saint-Germain, his time with the Ligue 1 giants could be coming to an end.

2. Romelu Lukaku (to Inter Milan for £65m, 2019/20)

It's mystery as to why Lukaku just couldn't deliver at Old Trafford because the Belgian is absolutely killing it under Antonio Conte. This season alone, the 27-year-old has scored 17 goals in 22 games across all competitions for Inter.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (to Real Madrid for £83m, 2008/09)

What can we say here? The Portuguese went on to establish himself as one of the two best players in the world after leaving Old Trafford. The 35-year-old, who is now playing for Juventus, is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.
