He was cautioned only twice in his career, his elder brother Jack, in the World Cup-winning team, is a former defender for Leeds United and international manager. Born in Ashington, Charlton made his debut for the Manchester United first-team in 1956, over the next two seasons gained a regular place in the team, during which time he survived the Munich air disaster of 1958 after being rescued by Harry Gregg. After helping United to win the Football League First Division in 1965, he won another First Division title with United in 1967. In 1968, he captained the Manchester United team that won the European Cup, scoring two goals in the final to help them become the first English club to win the competition.

He is United's second all-time leading goal scorer, being surpassed by Wayne Rooney, held the distinction of being England's all-time top goal scorer from May 1968 to September 2015, when again Rooney surpassed his record.

At the time of his retirement from the England team in 1970, he was the nation's most capped player, having turned out 106 times at the highest level; this record has since been surpassed by six players.

Charlton was born in Ashington, England on 11 October 1937 to coal mining worker Robert Wallace "Bob" Charlton and teacher Elizabeth Ellen "Cissie" Charlton.

He is related to several professional footballers on his mother's side of the family: his uncles were Jack Milburn, George Milburn, Jim Milburn and Stan Milburn, legendary Newcastle United and England footballer Jackie Milburn, was his mother's cousin. However, Charlton credits much of the early development of his career to his grandfather Tanner and his mother Cissie, his elder brother, Jack worked as a miner before applying to the police, only to become a professional footballer with Leeds United. On 9 February 1953 a Bedlington Grammar School pupil, Charlton was spotted playing for East Northumberland schools by Manchester United chief scout Joe Armstrong. Charlton went on to play for England Schoolboys and the 15-year-old signed with United on 1 January 1953, along with Wilf McGuinness aged 15, his mother was reluctant to let him commit to an insecure football career, so he began an apprenticeship as an electrical engineer. Charlton became one of the famed Busby Babes, the collection of talented footballers who emerged through the system at Old Trafford in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s as Matt Busby set about a long-term plan of rebuilding the club after the Second World War.

He worked his way through the pecking order of teams, scoring for the youth and reserve sides before he was handed his first team debut against Charlton Athletic in October 1956. At the same time, he was doing his National service with the Royal Army Ordnance Corps in Shrewsbury, where Busby had advised him to apply as it meant he could still play for Manchester United at the weekend. Doing his army service in Shrewsbury at the same time was his United teammate Duncan Edwards. Charlton played 14 times for United in that first season, scoring twice on his debut and managing a total of 12 goals in all competitions, including a hat-trick in a 5–1 away win over Charlton Athletic in the February. United won the league championship but were denied the 20th century's first "double" when they controversially lost the 1957 FA Cup Final to Aston Villa. Charlton, still only 19, was selected for the game, which saw United goalkeeper Ray Wood carried off with a broken cheekbone after a clash with Villa centre forward Peter McParland.

Though Charlton was a candidate to go in goal to replace Wood, it was teammate Jackie Blanchflower who ended up between the posts. Charlton was an established player by the time the next season was underway, which saw United, as current League champions, become the first English team to compete in the European Cup; the Football Association had scorned the competition, but United made progress, reaching the semi-finals where they lost to holders Real Madrid. Their reputation was further enhanced the next season as they reached the quarter finals to play Red Star Belgrade. In the first leg at home, United won 2–1; the return in Yugoslavia saw Charlton score twice as United stormed 3–0 ahead, although the hosts came back to earn a 3–3 draw. However, United maint
