Cannot believe Ronaldo is not on there!! Dwight Yorke was brilliant for Utd but he cost 400k more than Ronny!! Fergie turned Cristiano in to a world class footballer!!! Food for thought maybe?

If big peter had gone on to play for liverpool he'd still be a united legend in my eyes.

Where is Ronaldo on the list- yes he cost us 17.5 million initially but SAF turned him into the global phenomenon as he made the rough into the diamond he is now. Also sold for 80 million so a healthy profit on that eh Mr Wenger? lol ps. Ronaldo's statistics whilst a Man Utd player are ridiculous- 'THE BEST SINCE BEST!'

I think your forgetting Cristiano Ronaldo who united bought for reported 12 million and sold for staggering 80 million. his performances left fans in amazement with his exceptional free kicks and his ball control, he was excellent in air as well as being two footed. he will be remembered for being the first winger to score 42 goals since the great George Best. he left the club as the best player in the world winning everything England had to offer, to join his boyhood dream Real Madrid and continued his scoring record by scoring 100 goals in 105 appearances. A truly amazing player to have graced the green at Old Trafford and english premier league.

Keane and Vidic were probably the best having said that to spend 19million on a player just after a major knee injury and tracking him for years is sooommmeee gamble!! how it worked so beautifully!

I would add Cristiano Ronaldo in the Top 10 anyday, probably even the Top 3 buys. ManU paid around 10-12 million for him, and got over a 100 goals, lots of games won thanks to him AND 80 million from Real Madrid. That's quite a return - Trophies and 68 million.

I agree with Alex best buy players but why is C. Ronaldo not included? I think he is one of his best buy ever, to me he is manutd best buy so far.
