The official trailer for 'The United Way' has been released, presented and co-written by none other than Manchester United's cult-hero Eric Cantona.

From the Busby Babes to the 1999 treble, this documentary is the story of Manchester United, arguably the biggest football club in the world.

The trailer has now dropped on social media, giving fans a preview of what they can expect.

The synopsis for the programme reads: "The United Way is the legendary story of the Red Devils - an inspirational "love affair" for the ages."

"From their humblest of beginnings in England's industrial north at the turn of the 20th century, Manchester United gifted working men, women and children alike, the poor and the struggling, a new dream - a winning dream of hope, beauty and ambition."

"Presented by the peerless Eric Cantona and featuring stunning archive and never-seen-before footage, The United Way celebrates the birth and growth of a global phenomenon - a unifying club for the people, by the people."

The film will share Cantona's own personal insights into United along with the likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Bryan Robson, Brian Kidd, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Teddy Sheringham, Nicky Butt, Peter Schmeichel, the late Tommy Docherty and many more.

"Football has that power to change people's lives," says Beckham in the trailer. "Combine that with a city like Manchester... there's nothing more important."

The United Way will get a Blu-ray, DVD and download release on May 10th from Dazzler Media, before screening on Sky Documentaries and NOW from May 24th.
