We’ve decided to take a look at the most expensive transfers of the best managers in football’s recent history, starting with arguably the very best – Sir Alex Ferguson.
Sir Alex Ferguson managed four clubs in his career: East Stirlingshire, St. Mirren, Aberdeen and Manchester United.
He made a name for himself at Aberdeen, winning three Scottish Championships and the European Cup Winners’ Cup against Real Madrid in 1983, but established himself as one of the best in history during his 26-year spell at Old Trafford.
‘Fergie’ guided Manchester United to 38 major trophies, including 13 Premier Leagues, two Champions Leagues and five FA Cups. He had some of the biggest football stars playing under him at United, but which ones were his most expensive signings? We’ve listed the top 10, according to transfermarkt.
