Miguel and jose never have and never will be world class players, but they love the sport and continue to improve at it.

I was able to narrow down to two choices

c)never have been and never will be world class soccer players, but
d)have never been world class players and will never be, but

Which one would you choose and WHY?

Thanks

Is the aim on GMAT to correct the sentence with minimal changes?

I think it is D, given the limited choicrs. It would be nice if you could provide all the choices.

We need to correct the problem in GMAT sentence correction no matter how much change is required.

I think "have never been" in D is better than "never have been" in C.

D is correct because C has not complete verb and D has.

How can D be correct?

Where is the predicate for the second verb?

Miguel and jose never have and never will be world class players, but they love the sport and continue to improve at it.

C
Miguel and jose never have been and
never will be
world class soccer players, but

D
Miguel and jose have never been world class players
and
will never be what???
