Manchester United's Post Sir Alex Ferguson Signings Ranked
It's been nearly seven years since Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge at Manchester United, since then four managers have been in the hot seat, signing 31 players between them.
The club have failed to reach the heights that Fergie brought during his time at Old Trafford, where he won the Premier League title 13 times, with only one second place finish in the league to show for the period since his retirement.
During their spell of relative mediocrity, still winning the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup in that time, the club have signed 31 new players and they've certainly had mixed results with their incomings.
The Mirror ranked all of the incoming transfers in the past six and a bit years:
1. Bruno Fernandes
2. Juan Mata
3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
4. Aaron Wan-Bissaka
5. Harry Maguire
6. Ander Herrera
7. Paul Pogba
8. Victor Lindelof
9. Anthony Martial
10. Eric Bailly
11. Nemanja Matic
12. Luke Shaw
14. Daley Blind
15. Romelu Lukaku
16. Odion Ighalo
17. Daniel James
18. Marcos Rojo
19. Sergio Romero
20. Diogo Dalot
21. Marouane Fellaini
22. Memphis Depay
23. Guillermo Varela
24. Henrikh Mkhitaryan
25. Victor Valdes
26. Matteo Darmian
27. Morgan Schneiderlin
28. Radamel Falcao
29. Bastian Schweinsteiger
30. Angel di Maria
31. Alexis Sanchez
Fernandes has only just joined the club back in January and played just nine games in all competitions for Solskjaer's side but it shows just how good he's started life at Old Trafford, and how poor the signings have generally been.
The Portuguese star could have been signed last summer, and the team might well have been better off if that were the case, but had to wait to get their man and he's been excellent so far.
Moyes can feel quite smug that one of his two signings in at number two, in Mata, though Fellaini is well down the list in 21st, even though it took till Solskjaer was manager to get rid of the Belgian.
Van Gaal's top signing on the list is Ander Herrera, who Moyes actually tried to bring into the club and who the Dutchman didn't always use, whilst his worst signing in 30th placed Di Maria, who lasted just one season at the club.
Mourinho's top pick is Ibra, who joined on a free in his first summer in charge, and right at the bottom is Sanchez, who barely earned his wages during his spell in Manchester.
Who's most out of order in the list? Let us know in the comments.
