Manchester United Transfers History (2003-2006)

This started as a review of Sir Alex Ferguson’s performance in the transfer market since 2002/2003, when Manchester United last won the Premiership.

I’ll be posting the review later, but Manchester United’s transfer history is all yours to see and comment over.

Red11.org has all historical transfers (from when the club started) but they stopped updating in June 2004…however, if you’re interested in them, here’s the link.

All Manchester United transfers – from the summer of 2003 to the summer of 2006 (till today, August 17) are listed below. Do correct me if I’ve got something wrong or missed someone.
