Two Brilliant Bit Of Transfers By Manchester United In Recent Times

Manchester United have failed to lift the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford a few years ago. They haven’t even been close to challenging for the title are currently struggling to get into next season’s Champions League. The Red Devils have spent so much money in the last four years and have bought some star players to the club in recent times.

But not every transfer at Old Trafford has been a hit. There are a number of players who failed to realise their potential at the club but there are a few, who have definitely had an impact at the club. So who are United’s best signings recently? Here are two of the best Manchester United signings in the last few years:

Anthony Martial

The French international moved to Manchester United from AS Monaco for a fee of £36m a couple of years ago as a teenager. Since then, Martial has turned into a go-to man for the Red Devils. He has 15 goals in 52 league appearances for the club until now and has 8 goals and 7 assists in all competitions this season.

He is still 21 and is one of the most exciting players in his position not just in England but also in Europe. His skill on and off the ball are a treat to watch and United have spent big on him for the long term and looking at his performances so far, Martial stands as one of the most effective transfers at Old Trafford in recent times.

Ander Herrera

The Spanish midfielder joined Manchester United from Athletic Bilbao as Louis Van Gaal’s first signing at Old Trafford and has now cemented a first team place under Jose Mourinho. At 27, he is one of the most experienced players in his position in England at the moment and is one of the most reliable midfielders for the Red Devils.

He has 2 goals and 11 assists this season and has been consistent for the club, making 81 appearances already and is easily one of the shrewdest purchases by Manchester United in recent years. He is prone to making rash tackles, which can be a liability but Herrera certainly is a crucial player for Manchester United and hence makes it to this list.
