However, some players have turned out at Old Trafford and Anfield on a regular basis, and even fewer have won the fans’ affection on either side of the M62.
Their rivalry is steeped in success – United have dominated domestically, while Liverpool have made Europe their playground.
Daily Star Sport looks at three players who have played on either side of the North-West derby.
Peter Beardsley is fondly remembered on Merseyside, and he was part of a Liverpool squad that picked up two top division titles and an FA Cup .
However, before he made his way to Merseyside, to wear the iconic strip with the Candy sponsor, Beardsley had spent a season at Manchester United.
Not content with crossing one unspoken boundary, Beardsley did it again, and when he left Liverpool he went straight to Everton .

At the Red Devils, Ince was a key part of the side that claimed two Premier League titles , an FA Cup, and a European Cup Winners Cup.
However, when the Serie A came calling, Ince could hardly say no to the land of Roberto Baggio and Gabriel Batistuta.
When Ince returned to England, it was for Liverpool, and he had two successful seasons on Merseyside.

Michael Owen is the latest player to have crossed the boundary between the two rivals.
Owen was born in Chester, in between the two famous footballing clubs, but he spent his youth career on Merseyside.
At Liverpool, Owen emerged as one of world footballs hottest prospects.
He starred at the 1998 World Cup , scoring an incredible individual goal against Argentina, and won the Ballon d’Or.
However, injuries stopped Owen from fulfilling his potential, and by the time he arrived at United, almost a decade on, he was a different player to the one that had lit up Anfield.
