Manchester United agree £15m deal for Bastian Schweinsteiger

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United expect to sign Bastian Schweinsteiger this weekend after agreeing a £15 million deal with Bayern Munich, reports The Sun.

A number of reliable sources have today claimed that a deal is on the verge of completion with the 30-year-old midfielder set to sign a three-year deal worth £140,000-a-week.

The agreement comes just several days after Schweinsteiger admitted interest from Old Trafford was "flattering" and it now seems inevitable that he will agree to the switch.

He has just 12 months remaining on his current contract at the Allianz Arena and had threatened to stall over signing a new one if Pep Guardiola could not offer his assurances over his future role in the squad.

It is reported by the BBC that Louis van Gaal is trying to rush through the deal in order to get him on board before Manchester United leave on their pre-season tour of North America on Monday.

Double deal

Schweinsteiger is likely to join Torino defender Matteo Darmian, who is currently putting the finishing touches on his £13m move to Manchester United.

The Italy international was spotted arriving at Manchester airport yesterday Van Gaal confirmed he would undergo a medical this weekend.

Schneiderlin deal

It also means that Ed Woodward is likely to pull the plug on a deal for Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin.

The Red Devils had a bid of £20m turned down late last month but were expected to make an improved offer. The arrival of Schweinsteiger means the vacancy in Van Gaal's midfield may well have been filled.
