Everyone loves the transfer window unless you're a mid-table team who just happens to have a superstar in your squad that the rest of the world wants to sign.
That's rarely the case for Manchester United, as there are few higher status teams in the world that could offer more money, potential for trophies and international acclaim.
In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player I can think of that has actually felt the pull to move without cause.
There was no fall out with Sir Alex Ferguson, he wasn't playing in a struggling team and I'm sure there wouldn't have been a wage figure that United couldn't have come close to matching.
Ronaldo just wanted to move on, unlike Beckham who had a very well documented bust up with the United manager, which ultimately ruined their relationship.
Here we take a look at some of the more prominent transfer rumours that have been circling around the Red Devils of late.
