The Latest Manchester United FC Transfer News for 2021- 2022

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

Sir Alex Ferguson once again look to strengthen is squad for next seasons campaign after a largely disappointing season which saw the side from Old Trafford end the season with no silver wear for the first time in many years. The manager feels his squad over achieved last season due to their huge injury list and did extremely well to only lose out to Manchester City for the title on goal difference.

The managers first signing of the year was former Crewe Alexandra playmaker Nick Powell who is thought to have cost the Red Devils a fee of around six million pounds. Sir Alex has long been an admirer of this young and talented player who is believed to be a long term hot prospect for the side as they once again go on their usual charge for honours and silver wear.

Another signing that has been made which Manchester United fans will be extremely happy about is Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund who has himself been in sensational form for his previous club inspiring them to win the German Bundesliga title last season. The player has been welcomed with open arms at Old Trafford as his capabilities as an attacking midfielder are well known throughout Europe and he is now seen as a long term replacement for the ageing Paul Scholes.

There has also been a link lately to want away Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie with Manchester United as Sir Alex has long been an admirer of the talismatic Dutch striker. Utd will have to beat off opposition from many of Europe`s top clubs for the players signature as Juventus and domestic rivals Manchester City are both extremely interested in obtaining the Dutchman’s signature this summer.

Another player who is thought to be firmly on Sir Alex`s radar is creative midfielder Lucas Moura who currently plies his trade at Sao Paulo as he is now one of the hottest prospects in world football and has received much attention this summer from many of Europe`s top clubs. The player can offer both attacking and defensive play and is seen as the perfect addition to the red Devil`s squad after they lost out on Eden Hazard who has of course signed for Chelsea.

Dimitar Berbatov is one of the most high profile players to leave Old Trafford this summer as he has been told he no longer has a future at the club sparking much interest from around Europe. The player who has been at Manchester United for five years is now thought to be the top target of Ac Milan yet the Italian giants have been very coy on stating this. A fee of around the five million pound mark is thought to be required by Utd for his services and Ac Milan may have to fight off interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray if they wish to gain his signature.

Young left back Fabio has also departed from Old Trafford during the closed season on a year long loan at QPR as Sir Alex believes it will provide him with vital experience for his career amid fears he may find it hard to gain a regular place in the current Utd squad.

    Clubs’ pre-season clash is too expensive for some local fans with prices at least 60 times higher than for a domestic game

    Pre-season tours are back next month, with Liverpool and Manchester United bringing a taste of north-west England to south-east Asia. “For this part of the world, these are the two single biggest football clubs – we couldn’t get anything bigger,” Marcus Luer, the CEO of Total Sports Asia, who brokered the deal to bring the teams to Thailand, says. “This is the biggest match ever in Asia – the revenue will be the highest in Asia.”

    The rivals meet in ‘The Match: Bangkok Century Cup’ on 12 July at the Rajamangala Stadium, one of Asia’s iconic arenas, where the best way to arrive is to take a motorbike taxi from the closest station and weave in and out of the traffic in the Thai capital with thousands of fellow fans. If that offers a thrilling taste of Thai football culture, the price of entry would make even Premier League fans in England wince, notwithstanding the promotors Fresh Air Festival putting on a pre-match appearance from the K-Pop star Jackson Wang. The cheapest tickets at the 51,000-capacity venue are 5,000 baht (£115), about 60 times more than fans pay to get into Thai Premier League matches, and most cost considerably more.

    ’Tis that part of the season again. Not post season or pre season, or the festive slog through Boxing Day and beyond. Neither, too, the cool days of spring when the title race hots up. No, it is the season of Manchester United in the summer transfer market when domestic football’s favourite soap opera headlines the silly season and copious players are linked, targeted, lost, found, sold, signed and er … not signed.

    The last is already forming the narrative for some of Richard Arnold’s great 2022 Who Will United Land? show. This is the 52-year-old’s first window as the club’s chief executive and to listen and read the hysteria from pundits and supporters, he has to acquire Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and the next Diego Maradona or his tenure will crash and burn before takeoff.

United’s only previous Dutch manager, Louis van Gaal, experienced mixed fortunes, sacked after two seasons but having won an FA Cup and given debuts to Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard. Stam is confident Ten Hag can thrive with the right support.

Manchester United FC

Manchester United Football Club was Established  in 1878 and the Football Club Nickname is The Red Devils.

A Brief History of Manchester United Football Club

In 1878, a football club named Newton Heath LYR FC was founded by the Carriage and Wagon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (LYR) depot at Newton Heath. It was the foundation of Manchester United FC. In the beginning, the club played matches against other departments.  Particularly other railway companies. Initially, the club struggled just like any other inexperienced football club, losing their first recorded match 6-0 against Bolton Wanderers’ B squad.

Newton Heath LYR FC became a founding member of a regional football league called The Combination. After one season of the league, Newton Heath joined another newly created football league called The Football Alliance.  Which could only last for three seasons, and later on the Football Alliance was merged with the First Division Football League. Newton Heath qualified for the First Division in 1892, but couldn’t perform well in the league. Just after spending two seasons in the First Division, the club was relegated to the Second Division.

Change of Club name and management

When Newton Heath FC left the Railway Company and became independent in 1892, the club faced many financial difficulties. By 1902, club debt reached £2,670, it was a difficult time for the club to survive. During this difficult time, Captain Harry Stafford asked four local businessmen, including John Davies, to invest in the club. They each invested £ 500 to pay off the club’s debt.

After purchasing the club in April 1902, John Davies and other partners changed the name of the club from Newton Heath to Manchester United FC. They also replaced the old green and golden with the famous red shirt and white shorts. The new management also brought huge changes in the squad by purchasing a few famous football players, including George Wall, Charlie Sagar, Harry Moger, Charlie Roberts, and Alex Bell.

Early Success of Manchester United

This new transition proved to be so favorable for the club. In 1906, Manchester United was promoted to the First Division Football league and just a season later, they won their first league title in 1908.  The club also won the first ever Charity Shield and FA Cup titles in the same season. It was a great success for a young club like Manchester United. In 1910, Manchester United left its Bank Street home ground and moved to the famous Old Trafford. The Red Devils won the First Division football league for the second time in 1911.

Manchester United suffered badly from the First World War. When football resumed after the First World War, the club did not perform up to standard, and was relegated to the Second Division in 1922. Man United were promoted back to the First Division in 1925, but they could not demonstrate any impressive performance, and were relegated again to the Second Division in 1931.

The Busby Babes Era

When World War II was declared in 1939, all types of competitive football were suspended in England from 1939 to 1945. After World War II in 1945, Manchester United hired Matt Busby as the new manager of the club. Busby reorganized the club and guided the team to three straight league second-place finishes (1947, 1948, and 1949). In 1948, Busby led the club to win its second FA Cup title.

Matt Busby was a visionary leader, he promoted youngsters in the club. The strategy used by Busby helped Manchester United to win two consecutive First Division league titles in 1955–56 and 1956–57. The average age of Busby’s team was 22 during the league, which made it the youngest squad in the history of English Football to win the First Division football league. The team was named as the Busby Babes.

The Munich Air Disaster

The Munich air crash is the saddest moment in Manchester United’s history. On 6 February 1958, on the way back from a victory in the European Cup quarter-final against Red Star Belgrade, a plane carrying Manchester United players and officials crashed just seconds after takeoff in Munich, Germany. In the horrific incident, 23 people lost their lives, including 8 Manchester United players. It was a huge loss for the club, and Manchester United took years to recover from the damage.

Busby miraculously survived the crash, but was seriously injured. After his recovery, he took over again as club manager. Every year on February 6th, the club organizes a ceremony at Old Trafford to commemorate the Munich air tragedy and pay tribute to the players who died in the incident.

Revival of Manchester United

When Busby rejoined the managerial position after recovering from injuries in the 1960s, he decided to rebuild the squad of the Red Devils.  He signed some of the big names in the history of Manchester United including Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Pat Crerand. They helped Man United to win the FA Cup in 1963, and two First Division league titles in 1965 and 1967.

Busby restored the confidence of the team. Manchester United won their first European Cup in 1968, defeating Benfica 4-1 in the final. It was the first English club to win the European Cup. It was the biggest achievement of the club. After winning European Cup with Manchester United, Busby resigned from the managerial position in 1969.

Shifts of Management

After Busby’s retirement, Manchester United suffered due to lack of leadership. Tommy Docherty was hired as new manager in 1972, the club couldn’t perform well under his management and it was relegated to the Second Division in 1974. Docherty helped the Red Devils to get promotion back to the First Division in 1975. Under Docherty management, the club won the FA Cup final against Liverpool in 1977, but he was replaced by Dave Sexton in the same year.

The squad continued to struggle and failed to0 achieve any significant success. Sexton’s only notable achievement was that under his administration, the team finished second in the table in 1979-80 and reached the FA Cup final the same year, but lost to Arsenal. Dave Sexton was fired in 1981 and replaced by Ron Atkinson. Under Atkinson, Man United won the Charity Shield in 1983, and won two FA Cup titles between 1983 and 1985.

Sir Alex Ferguson Era

In 1986, Manchester United was going through a bad season, the club was on the verge of relegation. To avoid relegation, Ron Atkinson was sacked and Alex Ferguson took over as club manager. The inclusion of Sir Alex Ferguson proved to be a game changer for Manchester United. The club did not perform well at first, and the Man United legend took some time to settle down. Manchester United won the FA Cup in 1989-90, beating Crystal Palace 1-0, it was the club’s first title victory under Ferguson’s leadership.

In 1991, Ferguson helped Manchester United win their first and only European Super Cup title. In 1993, the Red Devils won the Premier League after 26 years, and won the league again the following season. Manchester United became the first English club to win doubles (Premier League and FA Cup) three times in 1993–94, 1995–96, and 1998–99. It was a great achievement for a club that was in danger of relegation before Ferguson’s arrival.

The 1998-99 season was the best for Man United, they made history by winning “the Treble” (the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FA Cup). Ferguson was knighted for his football achievements and awarded the title of Sir Alex Ferguson. Ferguson was without a doubt one of the greatest English football managers of all time. He led Man United to win 13 Premier League titles, 11 FA Community Shields, 5 FA Cups, 4 EFL Cups, 2 Champions Leagues, and 1 European Super Cup. Ferguson announced his retirement from English football as manager in 2013.

Post-Ferguson Era

When Alex Ferguson stepped down from his managerial role, he hand-picked David Moyes for the role, but the team’s results began to decline. Man United won only 19 of 38 matches the following season and finished seventh in the league. Moyes was sacked just after one season with Manchester United. Ryan Giggs, Louis van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho were later hired for managerial positions, but they did not meet the standard set by Ferguson. They all spent very little time at the club and could only add 1 FA Cup, one Community Shield title, and 1 Europa League title in the club’s honours.

In 2018, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was hired as the interim manager of the club. Under Solskjaer, United performed well in the first season, and won 14 out of 19 league matches. In 2019, Solskjaer signed a three years contract with United to bring back the legacy of the club. In the 2019-20 season, Man United finished sixth place in the league. Solskjaer brought back the spark in the club and helped Man United to finish second in the league.
