Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has insisted that he's closing in on full fitness and is enjoying life in Manchester following his summer transfer from Bayern Munich.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the German international, who has made two appearances for the Red Devils from the bench in the Premier League so far this season, has praised his teammates, and predicted that they will get to the next level in the near future.
United, of course, have secured two wins from two in England's elite division, but are yet to really hit top form, as Louis van Gaal's new-look side continue to get to know each other.

Schweinsteiger, though, is clearly enjoying life in Manchester, as he told reporters: "I'm here now to make an impact, a good one, and I'm looking forward to playing more games and getting better with my fitness levels.
"It was important to play 30 minutes against Villa, step-by-step I want to get to 100 per cent.
"Our team-mates have done an amazing job making all the new players feel welcome.
"It's a good dressing room, everyone joining together, it's a lot of fun. The most important thing is that we're like a team. We will get to the next level.
"The people are very respectful, very friendly and I'm enjoying it."
Big game player
There's no doubt about it, in his two cameo appearances for the Red Devils so far, Schweinsteiger has already started to look the part in the famous red shirt.
He really does bring a great deal of quality to the side, and may well prove one of the signings of the summer. He's certainly slotted in nicely into the middle of the park when replacing Michael Carrick, and United fans will no doubt be excited to see more of the former Bayern man over the coming weeks and months.
There's no reason why the dynamic midfielder won't be able to lead the Red Devils to success on both the domestic and European scene this season.
