£35m potential Scholes replacement 'told to join United'

Published Add your comment

Reported Manchester United target Bastian Schweinsteiger has refused to rule out the possibility of a move to England.

The Bayern Munich midfielder - valued at £35 million by transfermarkt - has spent his entire career with the Bundesliga giants and his swashbuckling performances have led to frequent interest from potential suitors.

It has been widely reported in recent times that Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has identified the Germany international as an eventual successor to Paul Scholes - and the 26-year-old admits he would be open to a move.

“I have a contract here at Bayern but I do love the atmosphere in the stadiums over in England. When we played Manchester United last year, it was amazing,” he told FourFourTwo.

“My brother is a big Manchester United fan and he keeps saying “Go to Man United!” [laughs] But I say to him, 'I can’t, I can’t!'

“I do love the speed of the game in England though. I am here in Germany until 2016, but we will see what happens. You just never know.”
