Ferguson was a trophy-laden manager at Manchester United, where he amassed an impressive thirteen Premier League championships.

 

Following their league title victory in the 2002-03 season, the Red Devils were unable to retain it during Arsenal’s renowned ‘Invincibles’ campaign.

 

However, prior to the 2003-04 season, Ferguson was unsuccessful in acquiring every transfer target.Three of the five targets were acquired by the club, as evidenced by the transfer manifest that detailed the players he desired at the time.

 

At that time, the identities of every player at the club were included on the list.

 

Prominent individuals such as Ruud van Nistelrooy, Roy Keane, and Cristiano Ronaldo were enumerated according to their strategic placement and contribution to the legendary Scot’s squad.

 

The ‘excess’ section was associated with, among others, Diego Forlan and Nicky Butt.

 

In the “youth potential” category were, among others, Mads Timm, Chris Eagles, and Phil Bardsley.

Ferguson’s transfer objectives, which comprised forward Alan Smith and defenders Gabriel Heinze, Philippe Mexes, Vincent Kompany, and Gerard Pique, were detailed in the final section.Three of the players on his roster were ultimately signed by Manchester United: Heinze, Pique, and Smith.

 

Mexes and Kompany, for their parts, remained at Auxerre and Anderlecht, respectively, prior to garnering future moves.

 

Mexes commenced his professional career with AS Roma in 2004, whereas Kompany transferred to Hamburg in 2006 prior to securing a contract with Manchester City, the club from which he later became a legend.

 

Ferguson’s failure to acquire the players of his preference led to Manchester United failing to secure the league championship for three consecutive seasons.However, they reclaimed the league championship during the 2006-2007 season and went on to win it for three consecutive years.
