Manchester United players have lost value in the transfer market after suffering their worst-ever start to a Premier League season under Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils were languishing down in sixth, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool when Mourinho was sacked on December 18.
The Portuguese boss had spent £400million on players since his arrival in Manchester, but a lack of progress led executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to swing the axe.
The Old Trafford club have since won both of their matches comfortably under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, a woeful start to the season has negatively impacted the worth of the squad ahead of the January transfer window.
Poor on-field performances from high-profile names such as Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are sure to have depreciated their value, while the struggles of Alexis Sanchez will not have helped the overall worth of the roster.
On the other hand, Liverpool are unbeaten in the Premier League and have seen their player values skyrocket.
The squad is still not the most expensive in the top flight, with Manchester City’s worth estimated at being over £1billion.
The biggest rise in squad value came for Bournemouth who saw their values move up by more than a quarter to nearly £150m.
The Cherries have just one win in their past five but a lightening fast start has greatly increase the prices Eddie Howe could demand if he was to sell his star men.
Wolves are also big risers after their impressive return to the Premier League while the likes of Southampton and Burnley have lost value.
