The 10 Transfers That Defined Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United Tenure

Well done

This list can only feature 10 of the 99 signings made by Sir Alex Ferguson during his remarkable career at Manchester United. By necessity, wonderful players who have made an enormous contribution to the club will be left off the list.

The criteria for making the selection come from a desire to represent the span of Sir Alex’s career; players from all his great teams are included. Personal preference certainly comes into it, too—I thought for all of three seconds before deciding on the No. 1 spot, for example.

Not every signing was wonderful, and I did give some consideration to including either Eric Djemba-Djemba or Bebe as signings which demonstrate that Fergie was fallible.  

Ultimately, there are too many wonderful players to celebrate to waste a place on the list with criticism.
