Fans’ view: What will Bastian Schweinsteiger bring to Manchester United’s midfield?

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United haven’t really had a reliable midfield for a few years now so fans have welcomed the news that the club will sign Bastian Schweinsteiger this summer.

The 30-year-old is the most successful German footballer ever having won practically everything there is to win with Bayern Munich and the national side.

No-one will know this better than Louis van Gaal, who established a good relationship with Schweinsteiger when he was in charge of Bayern between 2009 and 2011.

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on what they think Schweinsteiger will bring to United’s midfield:

Schweinsteiger will be a fantastic signing for United but the hope for supporters is that his capture does not affect the club’s pursuit of Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin.

If United ended up with both players, it would send out a real statement of intent to the rest of the Premier League. United leave for the pre-season tour of the United States of America on Monday and the club will be hoping to conclude both deals by then.
