5 most outrageous scandals to hit Manchester United in the modern era

Despite being in an Anthony Martial-themed wonderland right now, Manchester United supporters can’t help but still feel that the club are somewhat in transition following all those years under the great Sir Alex Ferguson.

Still considered an outside bet for the Premier League title this season, despite Louis van Gaal boldly and naturally claiming the Red Devils are contenders this term, United are still restructuring the team having spent some truly lavish fees in the last two summer transfer windows.

Under Ferguson, Old Trafford was a real fortress where only a few sides would ever prevail with three points, let alone one, but as we’ve seen under David Moyes and less frequently under van Gaal, United aren’t the same animal without the wily old Scot in charge.

That said, there is still a lot to be positive about for Red Devils fans with David De Gea staying while signing a new four-year deal, Anthony Martial starting his United career like a train and the club nicely positioned behind Manchester City in the Premier League table at the time of writing.

But instead of concentrating on there here and now concerning United in the Football Transfer Tavern today, we’re taking a little stroll into yesteryear while devising a list of the five most outrageous scandals to hit the Red Devils in the modern era.
