Top 10: Inspired Premier League signings (1)

Published 16 Comments

Twenty-one years ago today, Manchester United made one of the best signings of the Premier League era, purchasing Eric Cantona from Leeds United for a bargain £1.2m fee.

The mercurial Frenchman would go on to become a Manchester United legend - lighting up Old Trafford with his iconic aura and magnificent talent.

Without doubt, the acquisition of Cantona was a masterstroke by Sir Alex Ferguson, who made a few inspired signings during his 26-year tenure at Old Trafford.

But what are the other inspired signings of the Premier League era?

We've attempted to rank them in order - although feel free to have your say in the comments section below.
