Schneiderlin is widely regarded to be one of the most underrated midfielders in the Premier League having played a crucial part in the Saints’ success last term.
Man United could have a real player on their hands if they sign Schneiderlin and supporters were delighted to hear of the club’s interest:
Looks like we could've got Schneiderlin. Not getting my hopes up, mind. Hypothetically,a v.smart signing for us & a huge upgrade in midfield

Schneiderlin would be a cracking signing wouldn't he? Ticks all the boxes of the No.6 role Van Gaal wants to fill.

Southampton will miss Schneiderlin big time. He's been their most important player since coming up imo.

Big fan of Schweinsteiger and in a straight choice probably would have chosen him but Schneiderlin is absolutely perfect for our midfield.

Schneiderlin is going to give our midfield a completely new dimension.

Have a feeling Schneiderlin could have an effect on us similar to Carrick 06/07

Schneiderlin himself has made no secret of the fact that he wants to make the next step in his career and play in the Champions League.
United are said to be preparing a £24m bid for the 25-year-old and it would be difficult to see Southampton turning it down given Schneiderlin’s desire to leave.
