Manchester United look set to snap up Bayern Munich skipper Bastian Schweinsteiger in January, according to Talksport.
The German ace’s contract is due to expire in 18 months time and Bayern are reportedly fearing he has already decided to join United.
With his contract running down, the German champions have apparently offered to make him their highest paid player ever with a contract worth around £140,000 per week.
However, that will not be enough to stop him announcing his intention to move to Old Trafford and take on another challenge – to replace United legend Paul Scholes.
And, if he does want to leave, Bayern will demand at least £25 million for his services in the forthcoming transfer window.
Despite Sir Alex Ferguson insisting no one will be joining Manchester United in January, the club have reportedly tied up a deal for Denmark keeper Anders Lindegaard and are now targeting Schweinsteiger.
And with Scholes coming to the end of his career, having missed a chunk of Manchester United’s season already, Fergie is looking to add some much needed creativity to the Red Devils’ midfield.
