2. Manucho

Manucho, or Mateus Alberto Contreiras Gonçalves as you may remember him, was signed in the winter of 2007 to join the English champions.

Trouble with a work-permit meant a loan spell for Manucho who had impressed Sir Alex Ferguson, with Panathinaikos took him on loan.

After his first and second loan spells, sorting his permit troubles out, coming back from injury and playing a few games for United, Manucho found himself surplus to requirements in a fierce line-up of attackers and was sold to Real Valladolid.
