Man United closing in on Bastian Schweinsteiger

After weeks of rumours linking him with a move away from Allianz Arena, German international, Bastian Schweinsteiger may be set to leave Bayern Munich for Manchester United with reports claiming that the Red Devils will pay the Bavarians 7.5 million pounds for the acquiring the midfield dynamo’s services.

Schweinsteiger has fallen down the pecking order under Pep Guardiola and is reportedly keen on reuniting with former manager Louis van Gaal who is guaranteeing him regular game time at Old Trafford. And as he is approaching the twilight years of his career, Schweinsteiger is really keen on tasting English Premier League football before he draws curtains on what has been an illustrious and trophy laden career.

And although the German is going to be a great addition to the United squad, LVG is likely to go for a younger midfield option as well and would be hoping that Schweinsteiger is able to help the younger players at the club.
