Manchester United confirm Morgan Schneiderlin signing following months of speculation

Manchester United have officially confirmed that they have signed Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton.

Schneiderlin joins Man United on a four-year contract with the option for a further year.

The announcement came just minutes after the club also confirmed that Bastian Schweinsteiger will be a United player next term.

Louis van Gaal’s side were crying out for some dominant midfielders last season and they have addressed that problem in resounding style with the double swoop.

Schneiderlin is a classy player who uses the ball in a similar way to Michael Carrick.

He was widely regarded to be one of the best midfielders in the Premier League last season and he played a key role in Southampton’s victory against United at Old Trafford.

Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger and fellow new signings Matteo Darmian and Memphis Depay will now travel to the United States of America to begin United’s pre-season tour. It is a truly exciting time to be a United fan.
