Manchester United are reportedly interested in bringing up some help for Michael Carrick in terms of the defensive midfielder role, and according to the Sunday People, Louis van Gaal is readying a £7.5million move to land Bastian Schweinsteiger of Bayern Munich.
The 30-year old has been linked with an Old Trafford move on numerous occasions, and he is a player who’d be welcome at most teams in world football despite nearing the latter years of his career.
He’d certainly give the starting line-up some much-needed experience, and a duo of he and Michael Carrick in the middle of the park would be the perfect blend of mobility and passing ability.
Steve Bates has been quite reliable when it comes to United news recently, and the Sunday People aren’t a paper who’ll publish nonsense stories just for the traffic to come through their website, so I personally think there could be something in this deal.
Would Schweinsteiger be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
