It looks like Morgan Schneiderlin made his choice and is moving to Old Trafford. Will he and Schweinsteiger give the Red Devils an elite midfield?
Manchester United have reportedly agreed to a deal with Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin that will bring the star to Old Trafford.
According to the Metro, Man United have finalized a deal for Schneiderlin and will have him take a physical after what were reportedly weeks of struggles over the signing fee. Man United reportedly offered Southampton £20 million of the £30 million the Saints were looking for – an offer which was promptly turned down. The details of the final deal have not been released.
Though Man United have already acquired a midfield ace in Bastian Schweinsteiger this past week, the Daily Mail reported that the move didn’t affect their pursuit of Schneiderlin.
A seven-year veteran with the Saints, Schneiderlin was voted the Southampton FC Fans’ Player of the Season in 2013 after putting up a career-high 5 league goals during the 2012-13 season.
