Manchester United won their last Premier League title more than 9 years ago.
To put that into perspective, "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk was at the top of the singles charts, James Gandolfini was still alive and Conor McGregor was still a relatively unknown name at the time. Furthermore, Swedish DJ Avicii hadn't released his song "Wake Me Up" yet.
On April 22, 2013, they secured their 33rd league title by beating Aston Villa 3-0 at Old Trafford. At the time, longtime manager Alex Ferguson was still in charge.
That season, United's squad consisted of players such as Robin van Persie, Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia.
Their top scorer that year was Robin van Persie, who notched up 26 goals. The Dutch striker, who had joined Manchester United in August of 2012, also won the Golden Boot that season.
On May 8th, 2013, Alex Ferguson announced that he would be retiring as manager after more than 26 years of being in charge. The following day, the club revealed that Everton boss David Moyes would be taking over.
However, Moyes' reign ultimately ended in failure after he was sacked in April of 2014.
Since Ferguson's final season, Manchester United have failed to win a Premier League title.
Despite having large transfer budgets, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer all failed to bring the club anywhere near the heights that Ferguson did.
This question was answered on May 20th, 2022.
