Published Add your comment

Bastian Schweinsteiger waited for Paul Scholes at half-time to collect his shirt, according to former Manchester United player Quinton Fortune.

As reported by the club's official site, Fortune, who is set to play for the Red Devils in a legends match with Bayern on Sunday, has insisted that he will never forget it, claiming that Scholes has a great deal of respect in the game. 

Schweinsteiger, of course, has been linked with a stunning move to Old Trafford in recent time, with Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal seemingly want to secure his services.

And Fortune clearly has a great deal of respect for the Bayern star, as he stated: "I’ll never forget something really special that happened, when Schweinsteiger waited for Scholesy at half-time so he could get his shirt.

"This is someone who had just won the World Cup, and he was there waiting like a fan. I have a lot of respect for Bayern’s players for gestures like that, but it also shows the amount of respect people have for Scholes."

There's no doubt about it, Manchester United fans will now be hoping that Schweinsteiger completes a move to the club in the near future, but it remains to be seen as to whether Van Gaal and Co. step up their interest in the German international. 

Woodward wants Kane 

Manchester United's executive vice chairman Ed Woodward is seemingly determined to bring Tottenham striker Harry Kane to Old Trafford. 

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Woodward wants to prove himself in this summer's transfer window, with the Red Devils looking to improve in the attacking department. 

Kane, of course, was outstanding for the White Hart Lane outfit last term, so would no doubt prove quite the coup for United, but it certainly won't be easy for Woodward and Co. to bring him to Manchester. 

Messi hails Rooney 

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has hailed Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney, claiming that he's technically as good as any player in Europe. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Argentine ace has admitted, though, that he's never expecting Manchester United to allow the England international to depart the Theatre of Dreams. 

Messi stated: "If you look at the technical ability of a player like Wayne Rooney, he is as good as any player in Europe.

"Rooney has exceptional quality. Not just great technical ability, but also works very hard for his team. I'm sure Manchester United will never want to let him leave, though."
