Pereira seems to be doing alright. I don't watch Fulham, but when i check scores, i feel like he's always had an assist.
You missed the point of the op, the examples given are either unemployed, hardly played or banned.But this actually means that our management is decent!
How could their post-United careers be better? Do you expect them to go to City or Real and win the treble? We don't have world-class players who can do this, but even if we did:
1. Our managers are not stupid, there is no reason to sell our world-class players.
2. We are a very rich club. Naturally, we offer better wages, and most players want to join us, not leave us.
Currently, we are not among the best teams in the world in footballing terms, however we are still one of the richest clubs. There is no reason for a really good player to leave us. Usually, they leave because we don't want them. It is expected that they will not win the Ballor D'Or.
If we had players who left us and went on to great things afterwards, it would mean that our management is useless!
Some have indeed also went on to either do well themselves or be part of teams that did very well. In addition to the names you mentioned, we can add Herrera, Blind, Darmian, Mkhitaryan and Di Maria who won titles or been to CL finals long after they were deemed not good enough for us.There has also been some good ones too. A few that come to mind, although some have fallen off since or just aged.
Lukaku won the league with Inter.
Zlatan won the league with Ac Milan since leaving us, despite his age.
De Gea I agree is odd. Still a very good goalkeeper, still not old and should be in his prime. Could easily get signed by a top 5 team in one of the top 4 leagues. Maybe he just became available at a time when no team needed a keeper. I can see him being a very shrewd signing. Maybe whoever Mourinho manages next.
For a young player like Elanga, who never made good money, going to Forest is certainly great.You missed the point of the op, the examples given are either unemployed, hardly played or banned.
Elanga going to Forest isn't a poor career move, being unemployed since July is. There's a lot between good and bad.
Yorke and Park were older. You can’t throw them in the same boat as others.Who was out most successful departure post-utd in the Fergie era not including Ronaldo
Beckham? but IMO never reached same heights. Maybe Stam.
Loads didnt do amazing. Sharpe, Kanchelskis, Yorke, Park etc...
Mourinho said: “Smalling isn’t capable of playing through pain. He holds something back. His specific issue is a real challenge. It’s really frustrating for me because his position – centre back – is where we’re most desperate for players."Credit to Chris Smalling, he let his twin Mike go to Roma and he's been smashing it.
