Carlos Tevez and the duo of Rooney and Ronaldo showed their attacking prowess and that was crucial to the Red Devils winning five trophies in two seasons between 2007 and 2009. Carlos Tevez broke up the fantastic trio when he left the club to join city rivals Manchester City in a controversial transfer.
