Manchester United flop scores amazing free-kick

Kleberson was a World Cup winner with Brazil in the summer of 2002 and a transfer to Manchester United a year later represented quite a coup for the Red Devils.

The midfielder, however, failed to leave a lasting impression with United, making only 30 appearances during his two seasons with the club.

Kleberson is regarded as one of the greatest transfer flops during Sir Alex Ferguson's lengthy tenure at Old Trafford, and the player was pushed out to Besiktas for less than half the transfer fee Manchester United paid to acquire him.

He has since enjoyed an extended spell in his native Brazil and, now very much in the twilight of his career, Kleberson is playing his trade in the MLS with Philadelphia Union.

Kleberson has made quite an impact, too, with the 34-year-old scoring a wonderful free-kick against Toronto this weekend to send Philadelphia into the playoffs.

Watch the goal in the video above.

How does Kleberson rank alongside the biggest flops in Manchester United history? Leave a comment below.
