Urmm Michael Essien was all set to join United wasn't he? But like many players Chelsea poached him away from us, he would of been a cracking signing.

But the main one I don't think anyone has mentioned is the unmistakeable Ronaldinho! That signing would of been BIG! If it weren't for Barce-bloody-lona
.

I mentioned that :D and it wasn't Barcelona's fault, it was our fault. Ronaldinho was ready to join us, and Pele had told him to come to us. But we would not bid £21m we were only offering £19, and Barcelona were prepared to match that price, so we missed out on one of the greatest players to have ever existed

First of all, that is wrong.

Second of all - the correct version of that story is in my post on this thread.

Thridly, you're welcome.
Hmm fair enough, didn't know that, I was just saying what the reports I read at the time said but I'll take your word on this one :D

Greatest thats in question he is top draw but a fat lazy play boy I loved him but Im glad he didnt sign for us now.
Maybe he wouldn't have become fat and lazy under the strict guidance of Ferguson? But i suppose that's impossible to call.
