Manchester United have been on a real journey since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, and it has been in one direction: Downwards.

The Red Devils have tried to spend the way back to the top under four permanent managers since Fergie, and have little to show for it, one FA Cup, one Europa League and one League Cup, with the last trophy coming five years ago.

Part of the reason for the very mixed record on the pitch has been due to poorly judged spending off the pitch.

We have compiled a full list of every transfer in and out of Old Trafford since 2013, for use for reference, or simply an unhappy trip down memory lane…
