Until very recently, Manchester United’s 2005 takeover by the Glazers was the most expensive Premier League takeover of all time. While there was a lot of success under Sir Alex Ferguson, the departure of the legendary manager saw the club fall from grace and endure a six-year wait for silverware between 2017 and 2023. With the Glazers putting United up for sale again, they could soon be number one on the list.
