Manchester United have signed 31 players since the exit of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson who retired in 2013.

The 78-year-old Scott won a total of 13 Premier Leagues, two Champions Leagues, and several other silverware during his reign at Old Trafford.

However, the Red Devils have neither smelled the EPL trophy since then nor have they moved near being crowned the UCL champions again.

Although they won the Europa League and the EFL Cup under former boss Jose Mourinho in 2017 - a season after Louis van Gaal led them to FA Cup glory.

Meanwhile, the post-Ferguson era has not been excellent for United both in title contention and also attracting quality stars.

Quite a number of big names have been brought to the Theatr of Dreams but they failed to make an impact at the club.

Out of the 31 players who were brought to the club since 2013 and now, Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes tops the rank as the best player signed after Ferguson.

Though he has spent just two months playing nine games and scoring three goals while assisting four others in the process.

His impressive start to his reign at Old Trafford has seen him win the Premier League player of the month as well as his club's prestigious award.

Although Odion Ighalo denied him winning United's goal of the month for March, he has been voted as the best player to be signed by the club after the exit of Ferguson according to the Mirror.
