The Lon­don­er would ul­ti­mately go on to make his ma­rk at Man­chester Uni­ted and he went on to ap­pear in well over 200 mat­ches for the club be­tween 1989 and 1995. Whi­le at Old Traf­ford, In­ce won two Pre­mier Lea­gue title medals as well as two FA Cup win­ner­’s medals and one win­ner­’s medal each in the Euro­pean Cup Win­ners’ Cup and Foot­ball Lea­gue Cup be­fore he fell out wi­th Fer­guson and was sold to Itali­an Serie A gi­ants Inter Mil­an for a fee of £7.5 mil­lion in Ju­ly 1995. Af­ter spend­ing two highly suc­cess­ful years in Italy, In­ce was trans­ferred to Liver­pool for a fee of £4 mil­lion in the sum­mer of 1997, but af­ter a row wi­th man­ager Ger­ard Houl­li­er at the end of the 1998-99 cam­paign he left The An­field­ers for Middles­brough who where ma­naged by for­mer Man­chester Uni­ted team­mate Bry­an Rob­son.
