The aforementioned Fred is in fifth place, ahead of Rio Ferdinand, who joined the Old Trafford club for a reported fee of £41.4 million (R710 million) from Leeds United in 2002.

Juan Mata cost United £40.26 million (R690.86 million) in 2013, while midfielder Nemanja Matic cost the club £40.23 million (R690.34 million) last year.
