Manchester United fans were regretting the sale of Memphis Depay to Olympique Lyonnais after a screenshot of him talking to Paul Pogba emerged on Twitter.
There was one crumb of comfort when Manchester United sold the 25-year-old, and that was the buy-back clause inserted into his contract at Lyon.
In one-and-a-half seasons at the club, the Netherlands international made 53 appearances, scoring a mere seven goals and assisting just six.
In stark contrast, the Dutch attacker has been on fire with Lyon, scoring 44 goals and assisting a further 42 in just 123 appearances for the Ligue 1 club (via Transfermarkt).
Fans were full of regret following the emergence of the image showing Pogba and Depay talking to each other as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
