Man Utd Get Full Refund For Chinese Flop For Failing At Old Trafford

Man Utd Get Refund Dong Fangzhuo

Manchester United have received a full refund for Dong Fangzhuo after the Chinese striker flopped at Old Trafford.

United infamously signed Fangzhuo from Chinese club Dalian Shide in 2004 for an initial fee of £500,000, which could have risen to £3.5million, depending on appearances.

But the forward only played three matches and failed to score a goal before his contract was terminated four years after moving to England.

The Premier League giants were not out of pocket for the gamble signing, though, due to a clause inserted when they signed Fangzhuo.

According to The Athletic, Dalian Shide agreed to refund United if they were not satisfied two years after the striker completed the move to Old Trafford.

The flop moved back to his ex-club after leaving Manchester, and retired aged 29 after spells in Poland, Portugal and Armenia.

Fangzhuo’s spectacular fall from grace culminated in appearing on a Chinese reality TV show undergoing plastic surgery.

In 2015 Fangzhuo was without a club and was struggling to stay fit.
