It was reported last night that Manchester United were on the verge of making Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin their second summer signing in a deal worth around £25m.
The news seemingly comes as a blow to Arsenal, who had been heavily linked with a move for the France international persistently over the past two years.
Arsenal’s loss is United’s gain. At least that’s the opinion of many Red Devils supporters took to Twitter to celebrate the reports.
The best of the Twitter reaction can be found below.
Schneiderlin, who scored four goals and made one assist in 26 Premier League games last season, is expected to sign a contract worth £120,000 a week at Old Trafford.

I’d be more than happy with Schneiderlin. Young and always impressed over last 2 years.

@Rojonaldo Carrick has probably 1-3 more years in him and could teach Schneiderlin a thing or two

Preying we don’t get Schweinsteiger so we can get Schneiderlin.
