Manchester United are known to be chasing a defensive midfielder this summer, and Louis van Gaal is clearly after someone who is already proven on the world stage, and last night reports emerged that the club are close to signing Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton.
The news comes from the French media outlet Infosport, who are usually pretty reliable when it comes to the transfer of French players, and this time last year they were the first to break the Mathieu Debuchy to Arsenal rumour.
Schneiderlin himself has admitted that he’ll only leave Southampton for a club playing in the Champions League, and Manchester United can offer him that this summer.
The 25-year old would be a perfect addition to the United squad. He’s a proper defensive midfielder and thats something we’ve lacked over recent years.
Would Schneiderlin be a good signing for United? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
