Victor Wanyama sends message to Morgan Schneiderlin

Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama has taken to Instagram to wish teammate Morgan Schneiderlin all the best ahead of his move away from the club. 

Various reports have today claimed that Schneiderlin is set to join Premier League giants Manchester United in a deal worth around £25 million. 

The French international has, of course, been one of the standout midfielders in England's elite division over the last couple of years, so it's not entirely surprising that Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal is set to bring him to Old Trafford, as the club go in search of proving their credentials on both the domestic and European scene.

Schneiderlin may well partner German international Bastian Schweinsteiger in the heart of the United midfield next term, with the Bayern Munich man also set to complete a move to the Theatre of Dreams sooner rather than later. 

Wanyama, though, will be no doubt sad to see his teammate leave the St Mary's after the duo enjoyed a fine season together under the guidance of Ronald Koeman last season. 


Victorwanyama: "2 years playing alongside you was a short time but we archived alot together , I wish you all the best in your new challenge you deserve it @schneiderlinmo4."

Brilliant midfield 

In truth, Manchester United have struggled in the midfield department at times over the course of the past 10 years or so. Arguably, the club have never quite been as strong since the incredible partnership of the legendary duo of Roy Keane and Paul Scholes. 

All of a sudden, though, with Schneiderlin and Schweinsteiger on their way to Manchester, the Red Devils are a completely different prospect. 

Schneiderlin looks destined to reach the top, while Schweinsteiger is a winner, with proven success in the game: both will play a huge role in helping the club cement a serious title challenge next season. 

And Van Gaal will have numerous options next season. As well as the incoming duo, United have Michael Carrick, who is one of the most established midfielders in the game. There's also versatile Dutchman Daley Blind, who enjoyed a steady start to his United career last time out. 

Ander Herrera, who also joined the club last summer, is a fine talent, while Marouane Fellaini was one of the club's standout players in Van Gaal's debut campaign at the club. 

With Champions League football returning to United, Van Gaal may well opt for three in the middle of the park, and he now has a squad ready to compete with the elite.
