Manchester United has signed many stars and missed many stars. It is no exaggeration to say that if Manchester United did not miss these stars, then the annual league and Champions League champions may be them. This time I will share the 25-1 position with you. Last review:
Atkinson is a big fan of Francis. He wanted to sign Francis when he was teaching at West Brom, and then he tried again when he became the bishop of Manchester United in 1981. In the autobiography "The Manager", Atkinson revealed that the reason why the Manchester United board of directors rejected the transfer transaction was that they were worried about Francis' injury.
阿特金森是弗朗西斯的忠实拥护者。他在西布朗（West Brom）任教时想签下弗朗西斯（Francis），然后在1981年成为曼联主教时再次尝试。在自传《经理》（The Manager）中，阿特金森（Atkinson）透露，曼联董事会拒绝的原因转移交易是他们担心弗朗西斯的受伤。
Atkinson said: "I mentioned this to Francis one night in Manchester. He felt offended and hadn't spoken to me for several years."
Ferguson’s autobiography is sometimes difficult to understand, because he reveals too little information, but occasionally some insider can be glimpsed from it. In "My Autobiography", he used a whole sentence to describe Neuer. It was 2011 and Van der Sar was about to leave Manchester United in the summer. Neuer grew up to become the world's best young goalkeeper at Schalke. Ferguson admired Neuer very much, he said in the book that Neuer is "on our transfer schedule."
弗格森的自传有时很难理解，因为他透露的信息太少了，但偶尔也可以从中窥见一些内幕消息。在《我的自传》中，他用一句话来形容诺伊尔。那是2011年，范德萨（Van der Sar）即将在夏天离开曼联。诺伊尔长大后成为沙尔克世界上最好的年轻守门员。弗格森非常敬佩诺伊尔，他在书中说诺伊尔“在我们的转会时间表上”。
However, Manchester United's goalkeeper coach Eric Steele held a different view. He convinced Ferguson that De Gea had a better future. So Manchester United spent 19 million pounds to buy De Gea from Atletico Madrid, and Neuer moved to Bayern in the summer of the same year.
但是，曼联的守门员教练埃里克·斯蒂尔持有不同的看法。他说服了弗格森，相信De Gea会有更好的未来。因此，曼联斥资1900万英镑从马德里竞技队手中收购了De Gea，同年夏天，诺伊尔搬到了拜仁。
Pierce, who combines strength, pressing and excellent free kick ability, could have won many honors at Old Trafford. Ferguson tried to sign Pierce twice, but Nottingham Forest refused to release. According to Ferguson, he even drove to discuss with the coach in Nottingham Forest, but the other side deliberately avoided him. Ferguson has always believed that if Pierce comes to Manchester United, he will definitely achieve some results. He said: "Manchester United is built for a football hero like him."
In fact, in 2010, all Premier League clubs wanted to sign Sterling. Sterling was 15 years old at the time and was very popular. He has not played for the Queens Park Rangers, but there are too many buyers, so the club intends to sell him for cash. The Queen’s Park Rangers got Sterling for only £50-that’s what they paid to the scout who discovered Sterling. Manchester United sent their youth training supervisor McClell to investigate Sterling in an U18 game, but Liverpool signed him first. According to the terms of the transfer, the Queens Park Rangers have earned £11 million from Sterling’s transfer, and they only spent £50 at the beginning, and Sterling did not play them a game.
Close your eyes and imagine Robben wearing a Manchester United jersey, passing a few people, and then cutting from the right to hit the door. If the transfer was successful at that time, the Dutch would “cut melons and vegetables” on the right wing of Manchester United every weekend, not Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern.
Robben said that Manchester United wanted to sign him in 2004, and blamed Manchester United for not reaching the deal. He met Ferguson and visited the Manchester United training base, but there was no news when he returned to Eindhoven. Chelsea also wanted to sign Robben at the time. He said that the reason he joined Chelsea was that their plan was good and Manchester United did not give him a chance. This statement seems more credible than Ferdinand’s statement. Ferdinand recently said that Robben rejected Manchester United because he did not like the taste of the Manchester United training ground.
In the 2008 UEFA Champions League final penalty shootout, Terry slipped unexpectedly, which allowed Manchester United to win their third Champions League trophy. But if there are parallel universes, that Chelsea legend played for the Red Devils that rainy night in Moscow.
Terry was a Manchester United fan when he was a child. Before signing with Chelsea in 1998, Manchester United also invited him to visit the training base. Of course looking back now, Terry will not have any regrets. He played 717 times for Chelsea, won 5 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cup titles, 1 Champions League and 1 Europa League.
Manchester United knows Bell very well. In 2007 Manchester United planned to sign him for 10 million pounds, but in the end he went to Tottenham. Bell said he chose Tottenham because he can have more opportunities to play there. Ferguson accused Southampton of failing to send Bell over, causing him to miss a Champions League title. "It's not that Bell rejected us," Ferguson said. "It's Southampton."
曼联非常了解贝尔。 2007年，曼联计划以1000万英镑的价格签下他，但最终他去了热刺。贝尔说他之所以选择托特纳姆热刺，是因为他有更多的机会在那玩。弗格森（Ferguson）指控南安普敦（Southampton）没有派贝尔出任贝尔，从而使他错过了冠军联赛冠军。弗格森说：“并不是贝尔拒绝了我们。” “是南安普敦。”
In fact, Bell will have a bit of news with Manchester United during each transfer period. Last summer, Zidane told Bell that he could leave the team, and Bell is very close to joining the Super League, even though his agent has always said that Bell is happy at Real Madrid. Of course very happy, golf is so fun!
Manchester United has never stopped pursuing Sneijder, transfer rumors did not end until he retired. Everyone has read too much news about him and Manchester United, so in a nutshell-he is a top midfielder, Manchester United has always wanted to sign him, but never succeeded.
Ramos has been with Real Madrid for 15 years. Every time he renews his contract with Real Madrid, there will be some news. Spanish media will always report that Man Lenovo signed him, until Ramos announced at the press conference that he has signed a higher salary with Real Madrid. contract. Guess what you want to ask-his contract with Real Madrid will expire next year, remember to pay attention at any time.
Barnes almost became a member of Manchester United. Before he moved to Liverpool in 1987, Manchester United was very interested in him. Ferguson also admitted that not signing him was a mistake. At the time, Manchester United scouts thought that Barnes was not suitable for the team, and they had just signed a long contract with the team's forward Ouchen. Although Ferguson regretted not signing Barnes, Barnes himself did not regret it at all. He won the league title in his first season in Liverpool and was named the English Footballer.
In 2003, Ferguson asked a young Czech goalkeeper to play in Rennes. The inspection report stated that Cech could be further inspected face-to-face. Ferguson took it down, but didn't believe that Cech had the strength to play for Manchester United. Ferguson said: "He is only 19 years old, too young." Subsequently, Cech went to Chelsea and stayed there for 11 seasons, winning 4 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cup titles, 1 Champions League and 1 Europa League.
In 1998, after Manchester United gave the league title to Arsenal, they decided to sign a player who could guarantee goals. At that time they reached an agreement with AC Milan to sign Kluivert for £9 million, but the Dutch striker did not intend to talk to Manchester United at all. He said that the only British club he wanted to join was Arsenal, and in the end he joined Barcelona.
"Maybe he didn't understand how big a club Manchester United is," Ferguson said. They then signed York from Aston Villa for £12 million. In Manchester United's first season, York scored 29 goals and Manchester United became the Triple Crown.
In the late 1980s, Manchester United tried to sign Lineker twice. The first time was in 1998, when Barcelona offered Lineker a price of £2.5 million. Manchester United just bought Mark Hughes from Barcelona for 1.8 million pounds, so it is impossible for them to spend more money to buy another striker from Barcelona. Lineker then stayed at the Nou Camp for another season, until Tottenham used 1.1 million pounds to bring him back to the UK. Lineker said that at that time Tottenham were a bit hesitant about the transfer, so Manchester United tried to contact him again. But in the end he went to Tottenham.
In the summer of 2017, Manchester United planned to spend 87 million pounds to trigger Griezmann's termination clause, but the French finally decided to stay in Madrid. Because Atletico was banned by FIFA at that time, they could not find a successor. So Griezmann stayed and signed a new contract, saying that it was inappropriate to leave in this situation. But two years later, Griezmann still left, and the process of leaving the team was very bloody.
In the summer of 2017, Mourinho planned to buy a central defender. He inspected Smalling, Phil Jones, Rojo, Bailey, Blind, etc., but was not satisfied. He finally identified three candidates and asked the club to sign one of them. The three players are: Keane, Lindelof and Van Dijk. On July 15, Manchester United used 31 million pounds to bring Lindelof from Benfica to Manchester United. Six months later, Liverpool bought Van Dijk from Southampton for 75 million pounds.
2017年夏天，穆里尼奥计划购买一名中央后卫。他检查了Smalling，Phil Jones，Rojo，Bailey，Blind等，但不满意。他最终确定了三名候选人，并要求俱乐部签署其中一位。这三位球员分别是：基恩（Keane），林德洛夫（Lindelof）和范迪克（Van Dijk）。 7月15日，曼联花费3100万英镑将林德洛夫从本菲卡带到曼联。六个月后，利物浦以7500万英镑从南安普敦买下了范迪克。
Few players will directly reject Manchester United. Alan Shearer did it twice. The first was when he left Southampton for Blackburn in 1992, and the second was when he joined Newcastle four years later. It was rumored that Shearer wanted to join Manchester United, so Manchester United talked with Shearer and his agent. Things went well at the beginning, until one day Shearer's agent told Ferguson that they finally decided to join Newcastle. Ferguson seemed to be stimulated, so he signed Johnson, Cruyff Jr., Pobosky, Van der Gu and Solskjaer in one go. Solskjaer has won 6 league titles at Manchester United, 2 FA Cup titles and 1 UEFA Champions League; Shearer scored 148 goals at Newcastle, but won nothing, although he insisted that he did not regret rejecting Manchester United .
Hazard almost joined Manchester United in 2012. At the time, the transfer seemed certain, but then he joined Chelsea for £32 million. Manchester City and Tottenham also wanted to sign him from Lille. Hazard said that after communicating with Drogba and Cole, he decided to join Chelsea. Ferguson said that at the time they asked for too high a price, Manchester United did not want to give Hazard’s agent £6 million. Hazard grew up at Chelsea to become one of the best foreign players in the Premier League. After 7 seasons at Stamford Bridge, he joined Real Madrid for 100 million euros. As for Manchester United, they signed Shinji Kagawa from Dortmund.
Lewand is the goal guarantee. If the transfer is successful, he should celebrate his goals at Old Trafford every week, not the Allianz Arena. Lewandre once revealed that he had contact with Manchester United in 2012 and it seemed to go smoothly, but Dortmund refused to release. Of course, they can't be blamed. After all, Lewand has just scored 30 goals to help Klopp's Dortmund achieve two consecutive Bundesliga championships.
In the end, Lewand joined Bayern two years later and scored 230 goals in Bayern, achieving five consecutive Bundesliga titles.
For the best players in all positions, Ferguson has always wanted to attract his subordinates, even if he is the captain of his rivals. Manchester United tried to sign Vieira twice in 2001 and 2003, but failed. Ferguson firmly believed that Vieira would transfer, so after Beckham joined Real Madrid in 2003, he made an offer of 22 million pounds to Arsenal. At that time, Vieira and Arsenal had only one year left on the contract, but Manchester United fans did not have any expectations for the transfer. On August 12, Arsenal announced that they had offered their captain a four-year contract, and Vieira had a weekly salary of 70,000 pounds.
After Manchester United became the Triple Crown in 1999, there were rumors that Rivaldo was coming to Old Trafford. Rivaldo won the Ballon d'Or and World Player of Football at Barcelona at the time, but his relationship with coach Van Gaal was not very good. But no matter how bad the relationship is, Barcelona will not consider selling their best player to one of their biggest opponents in Europe. "Barça never considered selling Rivaldo to Manchester United," Ferguson said.
Batistuta, what a resounding name! His beautiful goals may be the best goals you have ever seen in your life. In the 1990s, he has always been in contact with Manchester United, and of course other European giants. Despite this, he played for Florence for 9 years until he moved to Rome in 2000.
Batistuta was at the peak when Serie A matches could be broadcast in the UK. You don't need to send scouts to investigate him, you just need to watch him on Channel 4 every Sunday afternoon.
Ferguson liked him very much and Manchester United tried to sign him, but the offer from Florence was almost astronomical. A few years later, Batistuta was asked why he didn't seize the opportunity to join giants like Manchester United, Real Madrid, and AC Milan. "I prefer the peace of playing for Fiorentina," he replied.
If Gascoigne joins Manchester United instead of Tottenham, will Ferguson stop him from drinking? Will Gascoigne achieve higher achievements? Who knows. What we can be sure of is that Ferguson tried to sign Gascoigne in 1988. He was only 20 years old at the time and had not yet played for the national team, but his advisers wanted him to be Manchester United's highest paid player at the time-£2,500 a week. Of course this is impossible. However, after interviews with Gascoigne, Ferguson believes that he persuaded Gascoigne to join Manchester United. Subsequently, Gascoigne met with Tottenham coach Venables, and the negotiations proceeded smoothly. In the end, Gascoigne joined Tottenham. Ferguson said: "They convinced him by buying a house for his parents. Missing him is my biggest regret."
If you are a Manchester United fan, you will remember that 2003 was a wonderful summer. Manchester United just sold Beckham to Real Madrid, and they are very close to signing the Brazilian genius Ronaldinho. The only problem is that Barcelona also want to sign him. Therefore, after giving Paris a transfer fee of 32.2 million euros, Camp Nou ushered in their football wizard. But Manchester United is not for nothing. They signed Ronaldo from Sporting Lisbon, and they also signed a Brazilian player-Kleberson.
In the summer of 1996, everyone knew that Zidane was leaving Bordeaux. He had just become a French footballer, and all European giants were looking at him. Manchester United also included him in the signings list, Cantona directly told Ferguson that he should be signed.
According to the former chairman of Manchester United Edwards, the reason Manchester United did not sign Zidane was because Ferguson felt he was not the player Manchester United needed at the time. Zidane then left Bordeaux and achieved career Grand Slams in Juventus, Real Madrid and the French national team.
Ronaldo is a phenomenal player, he is a master of speed, power, skill and shooting. In 1996, Manchester United had a chance to sign Ronaldo, but Eindhoven’s asking price of 20 million euros dispelled them.
