Manchester United close in on Morgan Schneiderlin

According to reports, English Premier League giants, Manchester United are edging closer to securing  a move for France international, Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton.

The dynamic midfielder has been allowed to talk to potential suitors by the Saints who have reportedly accepted United’s bid for the player. And although he wants to move to Arsenal this summer, with no bids forthcoming from the Londoners, has no issue in making a switch to Old Trafford where he knows that he will be given a lot of chances to fight for top honours in England and in Europe.

Wenger was really interested in bringing him to the Emirates, but with the Frenchman not showing any resolve in this case, has already decided to join the Red Devils.

A fee in the region of 20 million pounds has reportedly been discussed which means that pretty soon, the player could be agreeing personal terms with Louis van Gaal’s side where he will provide competition to Michael Carrick for a place in the starting XI.
