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Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below: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.

  • Sun, 27 Nov 2022 18:58:13 +0000: 'One of my idols': Marcus Rashford pays tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo – video - Manchester United | The Guardian

    Marcus Rashford has said his former Manchester United teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, is 'one of my idols' and to have had the experience of playing alongside him was 'unbelievable'. The England forward said of Ronaldo: 'He's someone I’ve always looked up to. So, to have the opportunity to play with him is unbelievable and you know I’ll take that with me and it’s something that I can keep with me forever.'

    Manchester United announced this week that Ronaldo would leave the club with immediate effect, bringing to a bitter end his second spell at Old Trafford after he gave an explosive media interview, claiming he felt 'betrayed' by the club.

  • Sat, 26 Nov 2022 12:00:26 +0000: Manchester United fans must wait: football’s biggest sale will take time - Manchester United | The Guardian

    Cristiano Ronaldo is gone and the Glazers are going, but despite such seismic shifts selling Old Trafford will not be a quick deal

    In the space of four hours and eight minutes on Tuesday, Manchester United put out two statements that will surely go down in the club’s history. First, the mutual termination of Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract was announced at 5.30pm and it was later confirmed the Glazer family were open to selling up. Most United fans welcomed the news. Their ageing prima donna was heading for the exit and there was renewed hope the unpopular American owners might pack up.

    It had taken fewer than 10 days from Ronaldo’s melodramatic broadside at United, delivered via Piers Morgan’s knockabout questioning, to the No 7 shirt being vacated. Those in the firing line included the owners, coaches past and present and the club’s training facilities. There was no way back for Ronaldo, not that he wanted one. When his contract was ripped up, the club and player got what they desired.

  • Fri, 25 Nov 2022 15:47:51 +0000: David Beckham and a Manchester United bid – what could go wrong? | Marina Hyde - Manchester United | The Guardian

    There is no more elegant pivot than moaning about the World Cup in Qatar to begging a Gulf state to come and buy your club

    “When I want a peerage,” sniffed Alfred Harmsworth (later Lord Northcliffe), “I shall buy one like an honest man.” So yes: I want to begin with an apology for a ridiculous statement in my most recent column, which held that David Beckham’s mega-lucrative Qatar promotional deal meant he has been “wearing the face of a man who knows he is never going to get his knighthood now”. This was obviously wrong. Having been paid a reported £150m for his work shilling for the Qatari regime, David is in fact even better placed to buy a knighthood than he was before, and could easily run to a peerage.

    But could David also be involved in the purchase of something else? Namely, Manchester United football club, which you’ll have noted is back on the market after the adored Glazer family have finally decided to cash out of the club they bought with some debt back in 2005. Can you cash out of something you never put cash into? Amazingly, yes. High finance is magic, and I’ve got a huge amount of time for it.

    The Guardian's John Brewin explains the lasting legacy of the Glazer family at Manchester United as they put the club up for sale after 17 years of ownership. The overall picture has been rather grim for fans, with bad management decisions, a lack of investment and the existence of the club as the Glazers' personal bank summarising their reign. For the Glazers, however, it was a very successful ownership with huge financial gains.

    Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s sports minister, has said his government would definitely support any private sector bids from the country for Manchester United or Liverpool.

    While the Saudi Public Investment Fund backed the purchase of Newcastle United last winter, Prince Abdulaziz said private businesses in his country have a strong interest in English football’s most successful clubs, with both instructing banks regarding potential investment or sale.

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.
