United won 2- from Newcastle United in the finals of the FA Cup. United also went on to win the UEFA Champions League by defeating Bayern Munich in the ultimate 2-one during injuries time.

The Red Devils have won the English Premier league 16 times, the FA Cup 11 occasions (a record), the League Cup and the UEFA Champions League Cup twice and the Intercontinental Cup and the European Tremendous Cup as soon as.

Sir Alex Ferguson attempted to signal Ronaldinho in the yr of 2003, but the offer fell via. This was because the Manchester United and PSG could not agree upon the payment and lost the bid to FC Barcelona who signed Ronaldinho for £50million.
