Heinze joined Manchester United in June 2004 on a five-year contract, proving the great success of a disappointing 2004-05 season, Heinze's skill and tremendous enthusiasm at left-back soon endeared him to the fans.

In the words of Henry Winter: "He defends like an Argentine and attacks like a Brazilian." The arrival of Patrice Evra blocked his progress and he moved on to Real Madrid.
