Fans can bid online for the colourful and abstract images of Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Rio Ferdinand, Nani and Ryan Giggs, which were created by New York-based artist Craig Redman as part of Turkish Airlines' 'Passenger Portraits' campaign. The portraits have been on display at airports around the world and also at Old Trafford, adorning the East Stand window and car park perimeter on Sir Matt Busby Way. The special editions in the auction have been coloured and signed by the players themselves.
Craig Redman commented: "My portraits are always of people I respect or admire, whether they are friends or celebrities, and this project falls right into that category. Being able to draw the world’s best players from Manchester United is an absolute honour, they are an inspiration to millions of people and I’m lucky to be able to celebrate that with my work."
