Published Add your comment

Reports have come out that Sir Alex Ferguson is interested in buying the Bayer Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger in the January transfer window.

This news has been fuelled by Manchester United's chief executive David Gill recent statement on the clubs financial policy, of wages being 50 per cent, or less of the clubs turnover,


"We believe we can still do that and still retain and attract the stars we need."

Manchester United were first linked with the German international back in 2008, when The People suggested United were interested in the goal scoring midfielder as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

This time the Manchester United boss is believed to be considering the German international as a replacement for United's veteran midfielder Paul Scholes.

Ferguson is said to feel that after nine seasons at Bayern Munich and winning five Bundesliga titles, Schweinsteiger could be interested in a new challenge.

However, both Chelsea and Inter Milan are also speculated to be interested in bringing the £35m rated midfielder away from the Allianz Arena.
