Manchester United are reportedly readying a second bid for Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin.
The Red Devils had a first offer, believed to be in the region of £20m, rejected by the Saints a fortnight ago and have been patiently pondering an improved figure.

And now talkSPORT claims that United will go back with a £25m approach, with Louis van Gaal keen to get the deal over the line in case Arsenal enter the running.
Reports on Sunday claimed that the French midfielder would favour a move to the Gunners, although he would still be keen on a switch to Old Trafford as he has Champions League ambitions.
Southampton will apparently hold out for £30m for Schneiderlin and may try to use Arsenal’s interest in the 25-year-old to push United to meet their valuation.
