Liverpool just can't seem to attract the marquee players with Memphis Depay the latest name to snub Anfield for one of their rivals. The Reds looked in pole-position to sign the Dutch attacker until Louis van Gaal nipped in to secure his signature.

This latest transfer blunder has angered Liverpool fans while Manchester United supporters were quick to rub it in their faces on social media.
