Shared player historyEdit

The first transfers of note between the clubs occurred in 1906. During the 1905–06 season City became embroiled in a financial scandal, which resulted in the suspension of seventeen players, including most of the team that had won the 1904 FA Cup Final. United signed four of these players: Billy Meredith, Sandy Turnbull, Herbert Burgess and Jimmy Bannister. All four were subsequently part of the team which won United's first major trophy, the 1908 league championship.

In recent years, direct transfers between the clubs have been rare. In 2016 German midfielder İlkay Gündoğan was sold by United to City for £35 million the first time United had sold a player to City for 30 years.
