So Sir Alex has finally ended his illustrious 26 year tenure at Old Trafford, and with him, leaves behind what is essentially an impossible task for his replacement to recreate the success enjoyed at Manchester United in the Premier League era.

However, this paves the way for all FM13 fans to live the dream, to replace the Scottish King, to become a master of European football. Manage Manchester United.  So what’s your first task? Buy some chewing gum. You can’t manage The Red Devils without chewing gum as Fergie proved to us. After that, get scouting, and  with a generous £38,000,000 in the kitty, delve into those positions that need filling.

With United’s defence coming under scrutiny of late, signing in some stalwart defenders is the perfect place to start. Combine that with some young future stars to develop and you will possess a title winning side for many seasons to come.

With the infamous 4-4-1-1 formation set in place, check out the mix of youth and experience you have the ability sign as Man Utd on FM13 for a meagre £37,750,000.
