Morgan Schneiderlin has revealed he can’t wait to get started at Manchester United after completing his move from Southampton.
Man United officially announced they had finalised the deal on Monday, putting an end to months of speculation regarding Schneiderlin’s future.
Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were both said to be interested in the Frenchman but he eventually decided to join Louis van Gaal and United, which was a great decision.
Schneiderlin revealed his delight at becoming a United player and told fans he can’t wait to step out at Old Trafford.

Schneiderlin is similar to Michael Carrick in the way that he is a smooth operator who uses the ball well. However, his energy reserves and real strength in the tackle, he’ll certainly bring more dynamism to the position.
United were crying out for a player of Schneiderlin’s quality last season so his signing can be seen as a real coup.
The hope for supporters is that he can strike up a solid partnership with fellow new signing Bastian Schweinsteiger ahead of an assault on the Premier League title next term.
