by Ben Topliss

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Sunday was all about Bastian Schweinsteiger once again as the German flew to England to complete his move to Manchester United.

The German thanked Bayern Munich fans for their support earlier in the day but revealed his excitement at beginning a new “chapter” of his career at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Robin van Persie flew to Istanbul to complete his switch to Turkish side Fenerbahce and will become the second United player to make the switch this summer following Nani’s move.

There was a lot of activity in the skies on Sunday as far as United were concerned as rumoured target Sergio Ramos also travelled to Australia for Real Madrid’s pre-season tour.

Back on the ground, Marco Materazzi and Jamie Carragher had their say on new United signings Matteo Darmian and Schweinsteiger, respectively.

Materazzi believes United have signed one of the “best wing-backs in Italy” but Carragher wasn’t as impressed with the club’s capture of Schweinsteiger and labelled him “past his best.”
