The Frenchman has enjoyed a fine season at St Mary’s and recently revealed his desire to play in the Champions League.
Although Man United have also been linked with the likes of Paul Pogba and Marco Veratti, they could certainly do worse than bring Schneiderlin in.
We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on whether or not the 25-year-old would be a good signing:
@PeoplesPerson_ Definitely. He has a lot of years left in him and is the 2nd best CDM in the PL after Matic. Perfect Carrick replacement.

@PeoplesPerson_ no! Only last resort should Gundogan, Pogba, Koke, Veratti, Schweinsteger be unavailable.

@PeoplesPerson_ Absolutely. He seems good, and also that name has many chant possibilities.

@PeoplesPerson_ perfect Carras replacement. Infact better at tackling. Could do the anchor role well #6

@PeoplesPerson_ yes would be a great signing….versatile, mobile and energetic, would make those around him more confident

@PeoplesPerson_ absolutely! The guy is intelligent strong powerful and underrated in his passing ability. Plenty of experience and only 25!

Crucially for United, Schneiderlin has proven himself to be a top-class player in the Premier League.
Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao arrived at Old Trafford last summer with big reputations but both players failed to adapt to the English game and disappointed as a result.
Schneiderlin would have no problem slotting straight into the squad before hitting the ground running. However, fans will know not to get too excited about a potential transfer until the player signs on the dotted line.
