first time just before the start of the league season, Cleverley quickly established himself as one of Sir Alex Ferguson's key central midfielders.
A classy player who always looks to pass forward and move into space, Cleverley also offers an attacking threat that was rewarded with four goals in his second full season at Old Trafford, including one against Newcastle at St James' Park that was a serious contender for Goal of the Season.
Having missed out on a league medal in such agonising fashion in 2011/12, Cleverley was delighted to help the club win a 20th title and pick up his first major honour in the game in May 2013. Along the way he made 22 appearances (32 in all competitions) and became a regular in the England side.
There's no doubt Tom has the ability to play at the very highest level. His challenge now is to maintain those performances and prove to new United manager David Moyes that he's the sort of player who can become a fixture in the heart of the engine room for many years to come.
