Malcom joined Barcelona in the summer after a breakthrough season in France for Bordeaux. The 21-year-old was thrilled to join one of the world’s biggest clubs, however, he clearly made the wrong decision in joining the Spanish club over Roma.
Playing in Rome would have provided the young forward with playing time, in addition to the chance to compete in the Champions League. Instead, the player has featured just twice in Spain and has already been heavily linked with a move away.

Fabinho has been a first-team starter since making his breakthrough as a 20-year-old at Monaco. After being a key player and featuring over 200 times for the club, the Brazilian was signed by Liverpool for £40 million in the summer.
Despite high expectations, the Brazil midfielder has featured just three times and he seemingly has failed to fit into Jurgen Klopp’s system and playing style.

Alexis Sanchez has had an awful time in Manchester. The 29-year-old has struggled for form and he has even been dropped in recent games. Sanchez may not only regret leaving Arsenal, but more specifically regret not joining Manchester’s other team.
Sanchez could have joined Manchester City upon his contract expiring in the summer and Pep’s team would have presented the Chilean with a platform to win the game’s biggest trophies.
