In years gone by, a player of interest to Manchester United would view a match for their then-current club as an audition ahead of a potential move to Old Trafford.

During Sir Alex Ferguson's time at the helm, players who joined United were virtually guaranteed to add one or two trophies to their list of honours - even if they didn't stick around for long.

Paul Gascoigne snubbed United for Spurs in 1988, Alan Shearer's love for his boyhood club was so strong he snubbed a chance at greatness to return to Newcastle in 1996 and Ronaldinho favoured the warmer climes of Barcelona over Manchester in 2003.



Alexis Sanchez arrived the following January, buoyed by the chance of playing in the Champions League knock-out phase as Arsenal prepared for a gruelling Europa League schedule.

When it became apparent United would not finish inside the top four three seasons ago, Jose Mourinho made winning the Europa League his number one priority.

United won at least one major trophy in 19 of Ferguson's 26 full seasons in charge; the Reds' success under him was the club's advert to potential signings.

Manchester City overtook United as soon as Ferguson retired and Liverpool have since done the same.
