Arguably the most recognisable football club in the world, United is the most successful team in English league football and has been home to some of the game’s greats, such as Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best and Denis Law. The club is also incredibly successful off the field, having become the first sports franchise to be valued at over $3 billion, according to Forbes Magazine. The record 20-time league title winners have dominated English football for much of the last 25 years and during that time, some of the biggest names in football, including Eric Cantona, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney, have pulled on the famous red shirt and run out on Old Trafford's hallowed turf. And they all played under the greatest manager football has ever known: Sir Alex Ferguson. He took charge of Manchester United in November 1986, before retiring in May 2013. The current manager is Louis van Gaal who took over the reins in the summer of 2014 following Ryan Giggs’ four-game stint in charge as caretaker manager after David Moyes’ departure towards the end of the 2013/14 season. Giggs is now van Gaal’s assistant and remains the club’s record appearance-maker. The current squad features star strikers Wayne Rooney & Robin van Persie as well as British transfer record-signing Angel Di Maria.
