Ten UNSTOPPABLE players Manchester United ALMOST signed: including Liverpool legend and Gareth Bale



1) Ronaldinho

The Brazilian superstar revealed that he was desperately close to moving to Old Trafford in 2003, but decided instead to join Barcelona (via Daily Mirror). Before then, the Catalan club had spent the previous few years well in the shadow of the Galatico-signing Real Madrid, and hadn’t won the La Liga title for four years. The year that Barca ended that drought – 2004/05 – was largely down to the playmaker, and came during the middle of United’s three year spell where they failed to win the Premier League title, and Ronaldinho would go on to win the Ballon d’Or in 2005.
