Despite Manchester United’s two seasons without a trophy, they remain the most successful side since the beginning of the Premier League, so understandably, they remain linked with some of the finest players in the game today. The latest names in the frame are Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger (via BBC Sport).
However, should neither the Real Madrid defender or the Bayern Munich stalwart move to Old Trafford, they will join a quite incredible list of players that rejected the club.
Here is the top ten players to have turned United down:
10) Karim Benzema
In 2009, Karim Benzema was one of the hottest properties around. The French striker was becoming a massive fish in a small pond, having earned a reputation as one of the most ruthless finishers in Europe while playing in Ligue 1 for Lyon. Unsurprisingly, he had several clubs interested in him during the summer in which he decided to move to Real Madrid. The Guardian report that he rejected Manchester United, as well as Barcelona and Inter Milan, to move to the Bernabeu. However, he remains linked with a move to the Premier League (via Metro).
