Fantasy football: Three huge summer signings have been massive Dream Team flops this season

Fred – £2m

United’s £52million signing – the fifth most expensive in their history – has had a torrid debut season in the Premier League.

Fred won the attention of Dream Team managers at the start of the season and proved to be a popular pick.

However, the Brazilian’s popularity among Dream Team managers dropped drastically and he now appears in just 1.5% of teams.

The midfielder’s pre-season price of £2m has been cut by £.5m after managing just 18 points so far in his debut campaign.

Fred has fallen further down the pecking order since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival and his Dream Team nightmare looks set to continue.

Matteo Kovacic – £1.6m

We’re over halfway through the season and does anyone have a clue what Kovacic does?

In the Croatian’s defence, he’s done more than Fred, picking up 31 points this season – still an underwhelming effort when you consider his pedigree.

Much was expected of the Real Madrid loanee but a run of poor form has meant his pre-season price of £3.5m has been slashed to £1.6m.

The Chelsea midfielder appears in only 0.3% of teams with a goal involvement of just two assists repelling Dream Team managers everywhere.

Naby Keita – £1.3m

Liverpool’s £50million addition of Keita was one of the coups of the summer window but it’s not quite gone to plan in his debut season.

The midfielder, through a combination of poor form and injuries, is yet to show the Premier League what he’s truly capable of.

Keita was a popular choice for Dream Team managers at the start of the season but his disappointing campaign meant his stock has plummeted.

The midfielder’s price tag of £2.5m has been cut to £1.3m after contributing just one assist in all competitions so far.
