‘If you look at us signing Eric Cantona for Â£1 million â€” and I think
this is probably the best way to do it â€” and how much youâ€™re seeing

Er, a couple of things, Fergie:
1) You signed Cantona 14 years ago. Have you heard of inflation or market forces?
2) So Juan Sebastian Veron is 29 times better than Cantona?
3) A minor point, but Shevchenko cost Â£30m, not Â£35m.
